Driver Updates via Nvidia Gforce Experience

I am constantly getting this message (Kindly , see the attached Picture) upon opening my Nvidia Gforce Experience software.

I have bought my ASSEMBLED RIG on the 5th of Feb 2015.The specs are as follows.

Intel Core i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60GHz
16 GB RAM
Nvidia Gforce GTX 960 2 GB Graphics Card
Manufacturer > GIGABYTE

Now,games such as Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeros are working with 60 frames per second while using fraps ( i am not very knowledgeable in this area , but the frames don't remain steady on 60,they keep decreasing slightly but return back to 60) All in all , a smooth game play.

Do i really need to update and download this Driver Update via Gforce Nvidia Expeerience.Even if i do so by making sure that i check the DO A CLEAN INSTALL check box,what else do i need to do. Because i have read forums of people doing some PRIOR uninstalling via control panel & even doing some stuff in Windows Safe Mode and further deleting some files from the NVIDIA FOLDER.

I am so confused and TEMPTED to see this message of NEW GAME READY DRIVER/OR NEW RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS is ready for installation/update from Nvidia Gforce Experience...I do not want to cause any crashes such as NVIDIA DRIVER FAILED TO INSTALL or similar...What shall i do ?

Some people like to do a clean install every time. I do express updates and go the clean route only if there are problems. You don't have to update any drivers if you are happy with the current ones. New drivers are more important with newer cards where drivers do give improvements and bug fixes. You should be able to disable auto-driver checking somewhere in preferences.

Edit: Preferences tab - Under Updates - uncheck both boxes. Also uncheck Beta updates too.

Always do a clean install. I always wait til a driver has been out a few weeks before installing it.

Right now 353.30 are working perfectly for me, no issues at all.

Updating to the latest drivers is totally up to you, but I recommend it.

Just use Geforce Experience and do the clean install, you shouldn`t have any issues.

As AddRAM says, if you're using Experience to update drivers just follow Step 4 in the link I posted to perform a clean install. The instructions you posted are for uninstalling all of your graphics driver components yourself, you won't be doing that if you're using GeForce Experience.
