8700m GT - best for performance?

First of all, I'd like to say that this website is pretty awesome. I was :) to find that nvidia doesn't natively support updates to it's notebook line. I'll soon be receiving my m570ru (within 1.5 weeks) shipped with Vista x64, and I was wondering what the best video drivers would be to maximize performance in gaming and general (dx10 and dx9).

Specifically, I'll be aiming my sights at company of heroes, civ4, and CS:Source (maxing, hopefully, with fps to spare).

Right now, I've prepared the install with the .inf which clearly enables the 8700m GT for the 163.14 drivers. Will this be my best option? I've read through the stickies and a few posts, and I didn't see anything specifically for the 8700m GT.

Of course, I'd probably run some benchmarks for before/after on CoH, but I wanted to know what this community thought about best drivers out right now in general.

(In case anyone was wondering...my specs =) )
