The GTX 600 series are high-end graphics cards, and graphics cards are used for everything displayed on your screen. For people looking for smooth gaming performance and high-quality content playback, the latest graphics cards and drivers are a must. The stats above are for the GTX 680 — however, improvements can be seen across all cards in the 600 line, such as the GTX 660 and GTX 670. Some of the older 600s are starting to come way down in price, and are good for budget-minded PC gamers.
Drivers are a set of instructions used to relay information between the parts of your computer. Driver updates are important, because they usually help increase performance, add new features, and get rid of problems that may have arisen with the previous versions. While users less familiar with computers may have trouble fishing around for drivers, we have a simpler method below. Otherwise, you can find this GeForce 314.22 driver update through Windows Update or at nVidia’s website.
To simplify the process of updating drivers on your machine, download our Driver Reviver software. Please note that we only support stable drivers — like this one — and not beta drivers, such as the 314.14 update from earlier this month.
