Are Nvidia G Force Game Ready Drivers Updates important ?

I am getting an Update message from my Nvidia Gforce Experience Software , regarding a New Game Ready Driver Version 355.60

I currently have a Game Ready Update , Version 353.62 which i updated on 20th July 2015.Just so you know , i also updated my Nvidia graphics Driver (Nvidia Gforce Experience forced me to update Cuz it stopped me from doing any editing in Nvidia Control Panel.So after i accepted the Updates installation , i was allowed to edit Nvidia Control Panel again) , which is now letting me play games at their MAX.For instance , i am playing Assassin's Creed Unity , with TXAA Anti Aliasing ON.

So , anyway , do i really need to install this latest Nvidia Gforce Game Ready Driver Version 355.60 update ?

You don't have to install it if your current drivers are running fine, however most gamers like to keep their graphics drivers up to date. If you decide to udate the drivers follow NVIDIA GeForce Experience: A Beginner's Guide to perform a clean install.

Personally I like to update my graphics drivers manually, but if Experience is your preferred method then that is the best route to take.

My Drivers are working fine at the moment.I also did a Clean install during my driver installation with the help of a Tutorial that someone gave me here at Sevenforums. It took like may be 10 minutes in total for the whole process to complete.
As i said before,i was forced to update my graphics card by Gforce Experience.I wasn't aware of this , when my Nvidia Control Panel had stopped saving my settings.So,i tried everything & even thought of taking my system to a repair shop.Lastly,i remembered that Nvidia Gforce Experience had 2 updates (Graphics Driver & a Game Ready Driver) ready for installation & kept asking but i was ignoring.So , i decided to install them as a last resort.It worked and soon after the drivers installation,i was able to save my settings in Nvidia Control Panel.

So,i guess i will do the same thing.That is , keep the Nvidia Gforce Experience asking for the update installation , until one day when gforce experience will not let me save my settings in Nvidia Control Panel
