Ever since I updated the Nvidia drivers, I have been getting the random BSOD while in the middle of game play. I am wondering if I would benefit from downgrading the drivers, or could there be some other issues?

i would downgrade and see if the issue is still present if not. if it is after the downgrade i would then look at other reasons.

If you weren't having the problem before, then yeah it's probably worth downgrading. If you're still seeing the issue write down the error codes on the BSOD and Google (or paste here) to try and figure out what's causing it.

Admittedly it is quite rare that a video driver would cause a BSOD these days with the new WDDM, but it's possible.
