When is it safe for me to update my drivers

Hello! before I start I want to say that I'm referring to this thread BSOD at random situations caused by atikmdag.sys
So, I was wondering when it's safe to update my Graphic card's drivers again without having to face bluescreens, today ? Maybe next version ? Should I just stick with these drivers and never update these ? Thanks in advance!
