Hello all,
Just purchased all my components for my first gaming PC build ever. I am really excited for the parts to arrive in the next couple days! However I'm a noob and need to know what drivers to get for my PC. I bought,

i5 4670
8gb ddr3 1600
R9 290
Asus h87-i itx
Windows 8.1 64bit

I think the graphics card comes with a dvd for drivers. What else will I need to donwload for my PC to run best. Drivers for cpu? Drivers for motherboard? Does any of that even exist? Please let me know what is my next step I appreciate all the helpful advice!
Thanks in advance

Cool so once I get windows installed all I have to do is put in all the disc that come with my components to get them installed, then get the latest drivers for my AMD graphics card,

Then update the bios on my motherboard,

And I am done?

check the drivers for the motherboard too. The one on the cd/dvd might be older then on the website.
The only thing that you can wait are the one under utilities, you might need to read the doc to see if you want it.

I wouldn't update the bios unless I have to, but since it is new, if it break, you can RMA it.
