New graphics Driver for the Alienware m14x

I have the 3.0 gb version of the nvidia gt 555m. Recently a new graphics driver from dell came out. It was requirement urgent. however this graphic driver although newer, does not support battlefield 3 play. My computer still freezes up after 3-5 minutes of play. So i am forced to revert back to the Nvidia beta notebook driver on the dell driver page. this driver supports battlefield 3.

My question is this. Should I be using the more recent driver marked urgent. or should i continue to use the older driver that supports battlefield 3. Which I love to play. Is it a hardware life issue? Should i be worried that the older driver could damage my system? This is my question any answers would be helpful.

The "Urgent" driver from Dell is an older driver than the driver on the NVIDIA site.  Dell just repackaged it and released it a long time after NVIDIA released it.
