Yes, the Intel(R) 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection is your NIC.

"NICs are adapters installed in a computer that provide the connection point to a network. Each NIC is designed for a specific type of network, such as Ethernet, token ring, FDDI, ARCNET, and others. A NIC provides an attachment point for a specific type of cable, such as coaxial cable, twisted-pair cable, or fiber-optic cable. NICs for wireless LANs typically have an antenna for communication with a base station."
http://www.linktionary.com/n/nic.html

"An NIC (network interface card) is an expansion card that provides connectivity between a PC and a network such as a LAN, NICs are sometimes called ethernet adapters."

Its always better to use the newer version.
We sometimes use the older version if we are having problems with the old one, or the new version is beta relase (which is not your case).
Newer driver versions correct bugs, security issues and sometimes add funcionalaties to your device.
