Since it's just a laptop your not likely doing anything graphically intense. So, in general, the ones from the provider are likely to be fine. They at least are there because they are known to work. You can certainly update from the manufacturer, but it's not necessary (in my opinion).

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

The only time you're limited to your laptop manufacturer is if you have technology like switchable graphics. Normal video cards should get drivers from the graphics card manufacturer (eg AMD). Both will work though.

I just download mine straight from the manufacturer otherwise look for them at the parts manufacturers website.
