  1. i got a nvidia graphics card that i have upgrade the driver( my friend told me to do it), but in newest version at the moment it dont say anything about increasing my performance.
    at the older version it says like "Up to 45% performance increase in Mirror’s Edge with antialiasing enabled" but it dont say anything like that at the newest. do i need to install them one by one to get the perfomance and if i need to do i need to unistall the newer driver i already got?

    Go to Nvidia's website and they should tell you what performance increases, if any, the newest drivers should tell you.

    If you are concerned about your drivers you could do the following...

    1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions) to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper. If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers. All the drivers you need will be in the update.

    * Let us know how it turns out.
