Don't use commercial paid driver updaters, those are 'snake oil' solutions and can sometimes wreck your Windows installation. If everything works you shouldn't bother about driver updates (if ain't broke don't fix it). The hardware manufacturer website is the best place for drivers. Additionally, Windows Update will generally offer the WHQL drivers with the latest features or bug/vulnerability fixes provided by the respective manufacturers. You shouldn't worry about driver updates, except for graphics drivers which are usually updated monthly.

For pre-built desktops and laptops, it's best to use drivers from the manufacturer's website.
