How often do you upgrade your GPU drivers? Do you install beta drivers and hot fix drivers as soon as they come out, even if you are not playing the games they target? Do you stick with official (non-beta) releases? Do these drives help at all with less recent to older games? I'm curious, do these 'hot fixes' only effect the listed games or do they effect general performance. Do driver releases in general improve the performance of older games or do they only target newer releases. I don't play a ton of new games, and a driver update requires a couple of restarts as I always use DDU which seems to update more often than the GPU drivers. I keep a lot of things running so it can be inconvenient. I upgraded to 16GB so I don't need to close word, excel, PDF, mendeley, ect. while gaming.
