vista updates, how important?

I would like to know how important is it to download Windows vista updates?
My computer is running fine now, and I am constantly worried that downloading and installing an update might mess something up, like the video card, or a program.

I know updates are classified into 3, important, recommended, and optional.
What are these updates? All I see is a bunch of numbers.

The last update I installed was service pack 1. after that I switched auto update off.

The updates are pretty important. You're getting codes that closes up patches in the system that prevents hackers from getting through making it more secure.
