What computer hardware needs to have drivers updated?
« on: March 05, 2011, 12:24:49 AM »
Hi everyone. I am currently planning on building a new computer. I am wondering what hardware I need to get driver updates for (first time building a computer). I know you need to update the motherboard and the graphics card. What else? Thanks everyone

If you buy new stuff, it should have  a CD with drivers. But if you are buying things in 'plain brown bag' there may not be drivers included.
Most important are:
    Chip set drivers for the Motherboard.
    Video drivers for high performance graphics card.
Don't add printers, cameras and scanners till the system is up and running well.
