Opinion is like an *******, everybody have one.

Troubleshooting is fact oriented only. Seek for facts.

I see drivers for the GTX745 listed here,

Product Support | Dell US

Nvidia Geforce GTX745, GTX750Ti Graphic Driver Driver Details | Dell US

That being said though, I agree with the others, get them from Nvidia.

Laptops are usually a different story though.

Huh? Am I looking at this wrong? Sorry, but I only see 645 on this page, no 745.

Hmm, something's wrong on my side as I can't see it. Maybe it's because I'm checking from mobile? Can you show me a screenshot? I'll have to check on my computer later.

When it is based on fact, all opinions will coincide. So collecting for more opinions is meaningless.

Dell does not make a graphics chip. It is nvidia's product, and nvidia's driver is always the right driver.

As Derek said, this is a different story for a laptop, it is really different, as long as the OEM's craps are present there.
