Hi, for first ime I make the switch from desktop to laptop, so I am new to this area, I get a Lenovo Y510p(non sli) I7 with 755m; I use this for Photoshop, light task(some youtube,browse...), but some times (3-4hrs on week) for light/old games(like Sacred 2 Gold, Torchlight 2,..), so my question it is to stay with the vga driver from lenovo web site( now have a old version, 327.62) or to go with the new one from nvidia website? I don't quest for more fps. So from your past experience with mobile vga from nvidia , what it is the best to do?

Just download from Nvidia's website, if something ain't working as it should, get it from Lenovo's website, but usually always get it from the manufacturer :)

Also I use Windows 7 64b sp1(oem)...some say that if I use from lenovo it is better because it is optimized for my laptop, even it is older...

Get it from Nvidia. If it really doesnt work, then roll back to the lenovo drivers.
