Video card drivers - MSI or Nvidia?

  1. I've stumbled upon a slight mystery here,my video card has two sets of drivers, one from MSI and one from nvidia. Do you know which I'm supposed to use?

    Using the MSI updater it says "current driver: not installed" it also says that the latest driver available is 8.17.12.5896.

    I currently have installed Nvidia driver 285.79.

    I just don't know why there are two drivers...

    Any help appreciated, thanks.

    there is no difference between The two drivers ,the drivers in both MSI site and Nvidia site are the same .but through The Nvidia official site you can download the latest drivers ,which it is not available until now in MSI offical site , hope this help

    skystar is nearly right, i would first install the drivers off your cd which came with the card and then update it with the nvidia website one
