    What the best way to make sure all my drivers are up to date?

    I goto all the manufacturer's websites every month, but is there a better way?

    Once I have a stable system, I never check for drivers again.

    The reason being that sometimes the updates are worse.

    Case in point. The newest bios update for my Abit AB9 Pro is v.21.

    I stayed with 20. Turns out that a lot of people who went with 21 lost their sata optical drives.

    Once in a while I'll be reading up on shit on sites like bit-tech.net and neowin.net, so I'm usually informed as to when new updates are released. Otherwise, I just check every month or so, or whenever my PC feels sluggish when playing a new game.

    .

    Unless there's something wrong or your looking for a specific feature, don't upgrade.

    Now, about Vista...
