Sorry about the seemingly noob question. :doh:

I have downloaded - but not yet installed - the latest Nvidia driver version 365.10.

I am presently running fine on version 358.91 which came with my (week-old) Gigabyte GeForce GTX980Ti Windforce OC 6GB graphics card. It and my Acer Predator X34 G-sync Monitor are together giving me a great experience playing Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone in 3440 x 1440 @ 95hz.

I really don't want to risk upsetting the boat by unnecessarily upgrading a driver.

Can I just leave things as they are- and let the new driver rest quietly in my download file?

Thank you.

Just update your driver when it is either old or it has a optimization for a game you want to play. So if your playing the Witcher III, then stay with 358.91, if you also want to play the Overwatch beta, upgrade to 365.10. Overwatch does not have 21:9 support, but still is a good game though.
