Hi I recently just built my first computer. I decided to used win8 on it.
specs:
cpu: intel i5 3570k
MB: AsRock z77 extreme 4
memory: 8gb g.skill ripjaw x
storage: corsair force 120gb ssd
WD Black 500gb
Videocard: GTX 670 ftw
PSU: Corsair hx750w
case: CM Storm scout.

TLDR: 20+gb used on SSD?, Everything works, do I need to DL drivers?

Had some trouble getting the system to work. Found out that ASRock MB had to stay curved. So when I screwed in the MB and straightened it it would not work. (strange) I left the screws for the MB mount very lose to that the MB can stay curved, is that alright? Anyways, I finally got the freaking system to power on after 20 hrs. Testing each parts individually.

So I installed win8 and the strange thing I noticed first was that I didn't need to update any driver at all. I had sound. I had internet from my wireless card. Does Win8 automatically have all the drivers ready? I updated all the windows updates. (there was only 22 updates). I started browse around win8 and I noticed that I have already used up 20+ gb on my SSD. Are those all Win8 files? Is that normal? Also do I need to DL all the drivers for my MB, Videocard, etc. It's all so confusing to me.

Sorry for asking so many questions. I am very new to building computers, and this is my first time putting together a computer.
