I have a custom built machine which utilizes an XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 video card. I recently upgraded the machine to Windows 8 which very nicely detected and installed the video card driver on my behalf. I know that Windows 8 (and Windows 7 for that matter) will keep drivers up to date via Windows Update, but I am wondering if this is a good idea for a video card driver.
Am I better off downloading drivers from AMD and letting their software manage driver updates? Are there pitfalls to letting windows manage my video card drivers?
