Windows 7: Which drivers should I install

Which drivers should I install

I have a evga motherboard with an integrated nvidia 8200 graphics card. I am having issues with the latest nvidia 8 series drivers (my monitor will go blank randomly for a second or two).

Should I have installed the nforce series drivers (the driver package that runs the entire motherboard) that are months older because my graphics are integrated or should I stick with the latest 8 series drivers?

Thanks!

Thanks. I would do a custom install on the full package but exclude the graphics drivers and download them separately from Nvidia.

Hope this helps.

Just to be clear...

Okay, just to be clear; it is okay to use the dedicated nvidia graphics driver (8 series) on integrated graphics, correct?
