The ones that came in the boxes of the equipment you bought.

Install Windows
Install drivers and utilities that came with equipment
Run Windows update over and over till it says now more
check for and install updated drivers

I do the 1st driver install for 2 reasons:

1. To establish a "working condition" right outta the box for warranty purposes
2. Some utilities are not free but came bundled and wont install w/o that original CD
