Should I upgrade my nvidia drivers?

just found out that nvidia released new drivers, but i'm not sure if there is any improvement or just new support

i also want to know if there are any downsides, because i have heard that the drivers are slow

i am running the 4496 patched driver for my 2.6 kernel... should i upgrade?

I've heard the same thing also, I'm looking for the URL of something I read earlier.
I'm gonna stick with 4496 for now..........
