yes, you need to install chipset drivers. the chipset of hte MB includes the integrated video card as well as the primary communication bus for ram, sata, usb, ect. it will greatly speed up the computer to have proper drivers.

Ok makes a lot of sense. I wasn't aware that this card had integrated video. Thanks for the info.

your MB does not have onboard video but the drivers would include it if it did. since you got a AMD board its got an AMD/ati chipset and thus requires drivers for that. its kind of a bundled package.
