I did try google...but still no answer.

Theres literally 12 categories with 33 files in total.

What drivers do i install?
And what if there is more then one file under the category u tell me to download, witch one do i choose?

Do i still need to install the motherboard CD that came with it, if u do this?

Btw, i have the Asus Z87- A.
Appreciate any help :)

You install the ones under Chipset, Audio, LAN, USB, and SATA. Plus one of the VGA ones if you use the integrated graphics rather than a dedicated graphics card.

The ones under Utilities are optional. The other categories are things like manuals and BIOS updates.

When you install drivers from the homepage, you don't need the ones from the CD. They're just outdated versions of the same things.

Hi,

You can use the cd, but you might have new one on the site.

Usually you need the chipset, lan, audio, sata controler and vga if you dont have a dedicated one.

But you might want to install utilities and hotfix, just in case you miss something.

Same goes for SATA, there are 3 different ones. same date. witch one do i choose?

All of them. Well, I guess one or two of the ones under SATA may be optional, but I'd get them all to be on the safe side.
