Update NIC Drivers from rtl8169 to rtl8168

In checking my system for general info today, I did an

lspci -knn | egrep -i ‘Eth|net|wire’ -A 3

and I knew my NIC was a realtek 8111/8168/8411. It is using the r8169 driver and works well. However, I do believe that I can use the more appropriate r8168 driver.

Would updating this driver be beneficial? And if it can be updated is it a KMOD driver? and could it be installed with:

yum install kmod-r816*

Would I have to change repositories?
