    Usually months in my case since I never update a driver if the current one is working peachy. Especially with how nVidia can't be arsed to make GF Experience be smart and only download the parts that need updating, instead of downloading the entire 670mb package on my drive every time.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Kaisha: me it's because my card's been known to be erm, touchy. Sometimes it throws up at a certain driver (I think you know what that means), so I want to give it time to make sure that particular card doesn't have problems.

    But security problem = Download it NOWS.
