Well, if you really want the latest release, there is a beta driver available: GeForce Release 174.74 BETA.

Generally, the latest driver releases are from Nvidia. The difference in numbering from EVGA and Nvidia may be related to EVGA's numbering system and not necessarliy a "newer" release.

So this beta edition doesn't really do much performance wise?

Oh I see. In that case, you'll want the drivers for Windows Vista 32: GeForce Release 174 BETA.
