Vista driver and 8600GT

I'm really having some adventures with this card in Vista. I Installed 295,73 but I found
just navigating around the desktop, moving and resizing different windows, etc,etc
to be sluggish. I uninstalled and just for a laugh I allowed Windowsupdate to install
the display driver. To my surprise it was version 275.33. Physx was not installed,
but Nvidia update was. (Do I need Physx?)
The Nvidia driver downloads tool recommends 296.10.
It's an old box (Nforce 410 chipset) so no heavy duty games going on.
In XP (same box dual boot) I have one of the 285.xx drivers running -
In general, should this older display adapter be using the latest drivers?
