I'm thinking of getting windows 8 via the online upgrade assistant. Should I download my motherboard's windows 8 drivers before the upgrade and manually install them after its done or will windows 8 update them for me?

Windows 8 will normally download the drivers for you when you upgrade, BUT make sure you have manually downloaded your network driver beforehand, as it uses windows update to download and install the drivers, which needs a network connection, which needs network adapter drivers, so don't get caught out like I did!
