So guys I finally got around to building my computer,and it booted successfully.
Okay guys I'm at the stage where "i have to install new drivers",so how do i get about doing this?
Will windows 8 install all the drivers i need automatically?If not what do i need to do :??: 
This is the second time I reset my computer because downloading the latest drivers messed my computer up,but I think the windows generic drivers are limiting my new computer build.

Sorry for potentially noob question,and thank you for all the help :)

If you built this computer yourself all relevant drivers will come on CDs included with your motherboard and graphics card. That should be all necessary drivers unless you have additional hardware such as a sound card and/or raid card etc.

if its only your chipset driver, then you wont be losing out on any performance using generic drivers unless you plan on using some specific functionality included with that motherboard, so unless you will be overclocking or something else intensive with the mobo you need not worry

You also need the Network drivers if your board has a Killer nic, and possibly some usb etc ones that come on your motherboards CD
