    You can use those drivers if you want.

    You don't need the Dell drivers. Get these.

    Some nvidia cards are specific to the manufacturer and won't accept the "global" drivers from nvidia.com. The 310m for example on Lenovo laptops is a specific example.

    It is more stable. You know, beta vs finished product, that kind of thing... -_-
