Yeah, I know, you would think nVidia could ID their own hardware with their own utility but it doesn't work very well. If you do know what chip-set you have you can still get the correct driver for your motherboard from nVidia. I'm using the ASUS supplied drivers for my motherboard. The GT220 driver I get from nVidia.
The Acer supplied drivers may be older than what you could get from nVidia but they may also be modified by Acer for your board. I personally prefer to go with the manufacturers supplied drivers if available, especially for the motherboard. But thats just me, some will continually look for the latest and greatest where ever they can find them. Me, when everything works the way its supposed to, I'm happy.
