Best Driver for Dell XPS Gen 2 with Geforce Go 6800 Ultra?

I have a Dell XPS Gen 2 with a Geforce Go 6800 Ultra.

As you can see below, my driver is from 9/8/2005, version 6.14.0010.7851. What are the best suggestions for a driver upgrade for my computer? I play many graphic intensive games, such as Oblivion, World of Warcraft, Doom 3, etc. I have noticed that my laptop's performance on these games has slowly gotten worse, and this is why I believe my drivers need an update.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Here is some of my DXDiag:

Read the Recommended driver FAQ.

The new driver will only bring a performance boost on Oblivion. The other are likely to be in the epsilon to 1% performance boost... if not a performance lost.
