Updating my nvidia drivers
Since I typically manually fiddle with game settings, do I need Geforce Experience since I can just download the drivers from the site whenever a new driver is released?
From what you said, and if you don't need instantly new driver as they emerge on nvidia (you can live 2 - 3 months on "old" drivers), then do not install experience.
Some possible search terms are the name of your computer manufacturer (such as Dell or HP) or generic terms like "update", "maintenance" or "driver". If there is no update tool, no updates available, or if the updates don't solve your problems, continue to the next section.
If your distribution's standard update process doesn't give you the latest drivers, you may need to look for other package repositories for your distribution.

I mean, I don't use the optimizations of the program as they tend to be rather inaccurate and sometimes not as good as they should be, plus I do not have a NVIDIA Shield and every time the program updates I need to redisable the Streamer service since the program does not disable the service nor give me a choice not to use it due to a lack of a SHIELD. Really all I use the program for is for the auto-updating of the GPU Drivers.
Windows If you have a notebook or laptop computer: You should visit the website of the notebook manufacturer to download the latest driver.
If you have a desktop or workstation computer: Before you can update the graphics driver, you need to know what kind of graphics card you have.
In my case below, you will see an Intel as well as a NVIDIA Ge Gorce entry.
This means that my laptop switches between these two hardware depending on the need.
