My general approach is to not update drivers unless you are having problems. Installing new drivers can introduce problems you didn't have before.
If you must update them, Don't use programs like Driver Booster as they have been known to install the wrong drivers - before I knew this, I used it and it did just that. So you can let it update PC and suddenly find you have no sound.
Better to go to motherboard/Hardware makers website than to wait for MIcrosoft to get newer copies. The ones that show on Windows Update are only the updates supplied to MS for signature. Lots of drivers are released using signatures that applied to previous versions. Nvidia hasn't given them new drivers in over 2 years now.
GPU drivers are about only ones I would bother updating on a regular basis and even then it depends on age of GPU. The older the card, the less likely any changes in the drivers are for your hardware.
AMD have 2 types of drivers, the catalyst ones and then they have what they call Legacy. The legacy drivers are one set of drivers that supposedly look after every GPU prior to... um.. here is a list - https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-630
Nvidia just have 1 lot of drivers for everything but as I said, the chances new drivers help a GTX 980 6 years after the card was released are pretty small.
I haven't updated my GPU since I got it, mainly as I saw the new AMD GPU drivers have issues with windows. The ones I have work for me.
if motherboard is old, the only new drivers you likely to get really come from Realtek (Audio or LAN drivers) or Intel/AMD (Chipset drivers) and they have their own websites that include them. Even if its new, I am still more likely to go to the source and not MB maker for those drivers as MB makers are slow to update their sites too.
