its worth upgrading those drivers

Have been using 30.82 dets for ages, never saw a point in upgrading, if its not broke don't fix it.

Out of curiosity I installed 41.09 dets. I was surprised at the result

3dMarkScore with 30.82 drivers: 8434
3dMarkScore with 41.09 drivers: 8950

516 marks extra. Nice one

Yeah I too noticed a pretty good jump when I upgraded my drivers. I don't remember from what version I was at but it DOES help.

And if you need those drivers you can get tham at
