'Source' is just a typical game engine - suggest using the latest driver
with little regard on whether it'd actually make any difference! I still use
a Inno3D 4200 and I'm using 61.77. Prior to these I'd stuck with 31.40
'cause they were 100% stable and I could run all my games (up until I had to
get some later ones - hence 61.77). Again, I'm not going to upgrade these
until I attempt something that just will not work with them. There are
always going to be minor improvements/fixes in driver releases for old cards
but nothing major.
