Intel RAID Driver and Configuration Software Update - Should I Install

I have an HP P6530F desktop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1. The HP Support program that periodically scans my computer is offering an optional update for Intel RAID Driver and Configuration Software. I have attached a screenshot of the specifics.

My computer seems to be running fine. Is this update something I should bother with?
