Default New Win2k Drivers - To update or not to update?

I have been running the 3132 drivers for a while and I am pretty happy with them. I score about 2800 on 3DMark2001, my FPS on UT are around 90 and the image quality on all my games is great. Although I still can't enable AGP 4x without the system locking when it boots to the desktop I don't see that as a major issue and I'm not really certain that it has anything to do with the drivers anyways. The three main games I run are UT, Elite Force, and Tribes 2. They all run very good except for Tribes 2 and I don't think that any drivers are going to fix that. My question is should I upgrade to the new drivers? Has anyone seen any significant performance gains when running the afforementioned games? Any input would be appreciated.

Default here's an idea

try them out
if you don't like them go back to 3132

it's not like your computer will combust if you revert to an old driverset
