Hi i purchased a Gateway Fx6800-01e, and recently i purchased windows 7 ultimate 64 OEM which should be arriving soon.
I'm wondering what files i'm going to need and/or chipset drivers since i dont see any from gateway, i also upgraded to 12 gigs of ram and a 5870 video card over the stock 4850 :p 
Any help would be greatly appreciated or links to the files too.
FIRST POST HERE BY THE WAY!

Don't rely on Gateway for drivers... find out what chipset it has and go to the manufacturer's website.

OEM provided drivers are usually a waste of time. Like Zoron said, go to the manufacturer instead.

It looks like Gateway posts an earlier version of this INF under support for the FX6800-01e. They list it as the Vista64 chipset drivers for this machine.

Good luck and please post how you make out, I have one of these bad boys too and struggle with Vista daily.
