So if there are no changes for the games I play is it still beneficial to update drivers, are there any other under-the-hood improvements normally?

I wouldn't change drivers if there are no stated improvements you need. Sometimes there are new bugs in new drivers that might mess with your now-stable rig.

Just leave it until you think you need them.

The release notes mention improvements on 560's (notice to absence of Ti moniker)...

Default It can fold too!

finally a new driver that my GTX 550 Ti can FOLD with!

My GPU is happily baking itself with a P7621 work unit using this driver, without throwing the Corestatus (63) 99 error it did with other 170.xx to 180.xx series drivers.

I saw that too. But if they word it correctly, the 560 'series' should include our Ti models.

They can't list all the % improvements for all models. Chances are you will see similar results to those listed.
Bench it for youself, then you'll know.
My 3DMARK 11 score went up 100 points with the 285 drivers on my GXT 570. Seems like a good one 2 me.
