Question Clarification on Nvidia

Sorry for the very elementary question...

I've seen some threads and articles about Nvidia. But I'm trying to figure why I would want these to begin with.

Do I need these drivers

a) just to get the 3d stuff to work


b) just to get the nvidia card to work period.

I don't really need the 3d stuff. I don't play a lot of games. I just play an occasional DVD now and then.
