93.71 Drivers vs. newer ones

    I have been using the 93.71 drivers since April with no problems.
    I was just wondering if newer ones would improve video performance at all.
    Or should I go with "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"?
    I'm just a casual gamer but would like the best performance possible.

    Mobo=Asus AN8-E socket 939 w/ver 1012 BIOS
    CPU=Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego o/c to 2.64GHz
    Videocard=XFX 7600GT 256 MB
    RAM=Corsair XMS 2x1GB
    HDD=Seagate 160 MB SATA

    Thanks for any input.

    On my 7900gtx (all else similar parts) I did see a 10% 3dmark06 speedup
    and similar framerate gains in the crysis demo & bioshock & stalker with the
    most recent drivers. On older games it won't matter.
