Windows 7: Best intel driver for gaming?

Best intel driver for gaming?

When I run counter strike source, my driver is not in their database so they don't recommend it. Can anyone link me a download to a better intel driver for gaming? I'm sure it would make my gaming performance better.

I don't play Strike Source so I am a little confused here as to what you are saying, so I am going to let others chime in.

All I can tell you is this... usually, the only drivers you need are your audio and video.

The vidieo driver (thats what i think your asking about)usally ATI or Invida. Just make sure your GPU is useing the latest Win 7 drivers.

nVidia and ATI are a lot better for gaming then Intel's graphics, but his question is simply 'what driver version is better for gaming'.

I found that the drivers back in RC provided better gaming ability but the newest ones from Intel do the trick, you should really just make sure the drivers are up-to-date regardless of what a game company says.

It may not be in their data-base because they are focusing on ATI/nVidia more then Intel since Intel is rather weak and pathetic in the graphics department.
