if at all possible always get your drivers from the source. starting with the motherboard chipset from the MB manufacture. even if you gotta open up the case and take a look inside. –  Psycogeek Sep 23 '11 at 13:38

Actually, DeviceDoctor detects all your hardware, checks the current versions of the drivers and lets you know if there's an updated version. You can download and install them individually.

http://devid.info and http://www.pcidatabase.com/ can also be helpful. I didn't try the device doctor, but many other utilities I've seen looked like malware, so I resorted to using the websites only without any tools to find the device names, and then googled the official websites.
