Windows 7: Should I install Vista or 7 version drivers?

Should I install Vista or 7 version drivers?

My system came with Vista 64 bit installed on it. A little more than a year later I installed Windows 7. Now, I want to upgrade my video card drivers but I want to know which I should pick.

Should I install vista 64 drivers for my card even if I am using Windows 7?

Not unless you have to. If there are win 7 driver available use them there might be fixes in them that arent in the vista drivers. As a last resort you can of course use the vista drivers if installed in compatibility mode.
