Just about finished building and I think I may a few few issues.
I just installed Windows 7 64 bit on my pc and then proceeded to install drivers from the ASRock dvd. It would not pop up at first but by goin to my computer i got it to run. It gave me a few things to look and and check off on, I unselected the Norton AV as well as the google chrome explorer and toolbar. The thing is Theres 2 empty boxes next to each Driver or application. I figured just select the left box since thats how they were all selected at first, but for the ones i did not want i left both boxes unchecked (im wondering what the 2nd box is?) Well after installing the drivers a PCI contoller notification popped up at the bottom right of my screen and from what i remember it sounded like there was no driver installed? Could that be because of my EVGA 650ti boost graphics card? those go in PCI slots and I have not used the EVGA driver disc yet? Below I will list the PCpartpick url if it helps for people to know my set up. I am really starting to get discouraged, the build went perfect from start to getting windows installed. Also there was another red notification about a LAN driver not being installed? anyone with help for that would be greatly appreciated. Also the only way to hook up to internet is through my Netgear USB plug it which picks up my neighbors internet (which he doesnt mind).
I just need help with what all I need to do yet to start gaming on this rig. Intel updates? or Motherboards updates? should hooking to the wireless internet tell me to update or do i need to manually look for them online.

Thanks Again! This site has been a great help!!!

Yea just hook up to the internet and get all your updates that you need from Windows update. Then go get the newest video card update from NVidia.com and you will be ready to game.

Hi there!

Go here http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z87%20Extreme3/?cat=Down...

From the Drivers section, download everything and install them one at a time, restarting when asked. And from the Utilities section the only thing I found useful was the ASRock tuning utility and the XFast USB utility. As for the graphics card, just go to the manufacturers website and download the latest from them :)
