NVIDIA Drivers Required?

So, I am questioning whether I need a NVIDIA Driver to operate a NVIDIA GPU? I also want to know if a GPU can operate without a driver until the driver is installed.

Oh, So like if I didn't install drivers, and started doing stuff, then there might be weird side effects?

Not installing or having outdated drivers can lead to glitches/instability, or even games failing to launch entirely.

Basically you can go without drivers, but expect issues.
