So painless that both websites happen to have automated resources that will (probably) allow you to make updating your video card drivers as simple as a few clicks.
As you can see, I have the ATI Radeon HD 3200, ATI being owned by AMD. Right click on the name of your video card and click Update Driver Software…. The first option, displayed there, is what you want to click to automatically search online for driver updates. If you’re using an AMD/ATI GPU, you want to go here: there, you want to try to Automatically Detect and Install (to the right side). Feel safe to install and run any prompts that come up during the process because browser plugins are required to know what card you’re using.
In my humble and cautious opinion, there are two things that you should never put automated software in control of when you’re using a Windows system: your drivers and your registry.
Now, there are a whole slew of solutions for you if you’d like to go down that route, but if you’re an experienced user then I’d simply not recommend it.
It’s not smart to trust updates from that-one-official-driver-site.com, you know?
