Windows update driver for 980 ?

Hi,
Kind of wondering if I should load this driver wouldn't it be provided by NVidia ?

I wouldn't bother Mike. If your GPU is working fine then there's no need, I didn't.

Thank you Gav it has been bugging me
But as all things once you change what you have it's difficult to undo it :/

So am I correct to think it's part of NVidia drivers ?

I think so Mike, I didn't look into it much to be completely honest. As far as I can see the 980 doesn't need any extra drivers other than what's supplied by nVidia. You can always uncheck the update and leave it instead of hiding it, if it turns out you do need it in future (which is doubtful) at least it's there.

Everything is functioning well so I don't want to rock the boat
