Go to the website of your video card manufacturer for the latest drivers. Companies like Matrox are famous for putting out great driver enhancements.
Bus Mastering Drivers are drivers made by chipset manufacturers like Intel. They optimize control of your hard drives and other components to speed them up and lower CPU usage. If you can get them to work properly, they can make a big difference. You can get them from Intel's website if you look around hard enough.
