When dealing with drivers, it is always best to check the manufacturer's website first. There are sites out there that offer tweaked video drivers for nVidia and ATi if you are into that kind of thing. There are sites out there that offer driver downloads that are identical to the manufacturer. These sites are typically good for finding older driver versions and doing one stop driver shopping.

I have a few friends that are Linux nuts and they usually go to Linux sites to find drivers they need to get something working. One of them actually creates his own if necessary. I have yet to find a manufacturer that doesn't offer a driver but then again with Linux I can understand since there are so many different flavors of Linux.

The manufacturer should suit you just fine for Windows based OS's.

For Linux I would suggest scoping sites related to your particular Linux Distro.
