Hallo Ludmila,

For sure you can upgrade your NVIDIA drivers to the latest ones, as long as the updates already exist on the internet. You will just need to follow the following simple procedure:

  • Click on start on your computer and then right click on my computer.
  • Click properties, then click on device manager.
  • When the device manager dialog box opens, locate your NVIDIA drivers under network adapters.
  • Right click on them and choose the option to update the drivers online.
  • The latest update of the driver will be sought for and installed.
  •   

Hope this helps.

Upgrading your graphics adapter doesn’t mean you will be changing only the drivers and not the device itself. If you will only be changing or replacing the drivers with a much higher version then you will only be doing an update and not an upgrade. An upgrade means replacing the entire device with a new one or with a higher version or model, removing the old drivers, and installing the new drivers for the new device.

You can update your current video card with the latest drivers if there is an available update for your video card model. If you want to do an upgrade of your graphics adapter or video card, you need to uninstall the current drivers from your computer and remove the graphics adapter itself from the PCI slot or PCI Express slot on your motherboard.

If your current graphics adapter is built-in or is integrated into your motherboard, you don’t need to uninstall the drivers when upgrading. Just attach the new graphics adapter to one of the PCI or PCI Express slots on the motherboard and install its drivers. Once installed, you can connect your monitor to any of the two video ports on your CPU.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics adapter is a PCI Express model. To be able to upgrade to this model, your motherboard should support PCI Express. PCI Express is different from PCI. PCI Express has a much shorter slot than PCI. Your computer should also be running on Microsoft Windows 7 to use this model.
