hello all,

i am one of these people who know all about pcs every 2-3 years..., ie when i upgrade. this meens that im rather neive about new drivers and well things i need to install..however, between upgrades i keep an eye on bits and pieces that come along, keeping things in perspective. i went from a Athlon x2 6000 to a Phanton ii 955., specs follow..., im comparing my new rig to my friends...

me
MB: 870a-g54
CPU: Phanton ii 955
Ram 2x2gb ddr3
Gfx:5850 1gig
win7

friend
MB:p 5k/epu
CPU:E8500
Ram:2x2gbddr2
Gfx:5850 1gig
win7
all stock btw...... my friend is getting better numbers in benches, 3dmark11, civ5, stalker etc.., i know the dual core advantage in dual threaded application thing and, bless you, but i have the latest gfx drivres and bios etc..., however, the question i want to ask 'is there anything i need to install: chipset, system drivers' that im missing, to be honest i dont know what i need to install.........., any help will be rewarded in ...ummm... paradice...?....

run windows update and look at the 'Other software' part of it. Install all the drivers you see there.
