Hi all,

I have an MSI GTX960 and the driver on their website is 347.25 whereas on the Nvidia website there have been 4 later driver updates and the latest one is 353.06

Which one should I be using please?

353.06 - most will say always keep your drivers up to date.
It's just a case of experimenting as well... some may say it's good some may say it's not.

Somebody will probably chip in with more indepth information though.

If the Card is a reference design, the nvidia drivers will be 100% fine.

You only need to look at manufacturer specific drivers if the card is not a reference design, but even then, a lot of the time the nvidia drivers will be fine.

For Example, I run a Gigabyte 780ti OC, runs nvidia drivers, and using MSI Afterburner for overclocking, voltage and fan control, and that all works a treat :)

I always get the one from the nVidia web site when I build a system. Never ran into an issue doing this and have built a lot of systems using nVidia based cards of various branding.

Always use the official site to update the drivers. More often than not other companies won't care about updating them on their site.
This is especially the case with notebooks, they upload the first driver for everything after launch and call it a day. Shame.
