Maybe. But you must also consider this question.
Whats really more time consuming?
Spending 5 minutes to download the needed drivers from the manufactureres website
Tracking down and attempting to diagnose BSODS or other problems associated with a outdated, wrong, or bad driver somewhere a automated tool installed.
Possibly leading to a re-install of Windows worst case scenario.
I would say on Pe-Built systems you are OK getting the latest directly from their site though, rather than the actual manufacturer of the hardware.
