The programs (all that I've seen) charge for this service and/or are not always correct on what drivers are needed.

The PC vendor (or motherboard in the case of a custom built) is the best source to check for drivers.

Another consideration, the old adage "If it isn't broke, don't fix it" applies to updates. Many updates are for specific problems only and if you do not have the problem you don't need the update.

I think you will find that few experienced members of this forum would recommend such programs. Most full versions are not free and those that are should not be trusted. Don't ask about free downloads of commercial programs.

My view of updating drivers: If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Drivers don't cause problems just because there is a newer version available.

Most of your hardware is good The Nvidia card might be a Legacy card now

Like the poster above said if it isn't broken don't fix it you can only go so far with drivers and optimization

Only thing that will keep you current is to slowly migrate into a better system piece by piece

Memory is one you only have 2gb it would do you justice to get 4gb total that will give you a little more when gaming

also your other specs like PSU should be filled out

Driverpack is a good one. Mainly because it is just a front-end for the open source packs of drivers from here, which do a good job since the XP days.

Bear in mind too that many of the more important driver updates are already included in Windows Update.

i agree adding ram a better gpu, even a higher watt psu is a huge preformance booster even adding in a sound card helps because it takes the audio processing away from the cpu and lets the audio card do it
