Default Which Drivers

I have a NV5700 ultra and I was wondering would I see any improvments by installing newer drivers? Basically what I am asking is which are the best drivers for my card on Windows XP 32-bit and Linux x86-64.

I would recommend installing the latest drivers off of www.nvidia.com for the latest in bugfixes for your card.

Really. The beta drivers probably wont do you a whole lot of good anyway. Might as well get drivers that are supported for your card off nvidia.com like recommended.

Hi
Can anyone tell me which of the 3 drivers listed for my FX5600 is suitable for PCLinuxOS? Preview 81a is named on the disk. I am a complete dummy when it comes to Linux, so any help much appreciated.
