Should I download updated windows 10 drivers? What's the best way/source?

Download drivers from the machine or hardware manufacturers web page, If it's a brand name machine like Dell or Acer etc search out that model on the companies web page and it will list all the latest drivers.
If your machine is a custom build, then you need to ID your system board and any add-in cards and find the actual manufacturer for those.
Avoid the programs that promise to keep your drivers updated automatically. Too much chance of things going wrong. Also, if the machine isn't broken, there is a lot to be said for not fixing it.

It's always best to download the drivers from the manufacturer's website. W10 will automatically install drivers from Windows Updates, but they usually aren't the latest or best versions.
