Tags: Asus Download Drivers Motherboards Product Last response: July 12, 2012 4:16 PM in Motherboards Share jsjoe3030 July 12, 2012 3:06:39 PM Hi All, I'll be putting my FIRST build together tonight, and I have a question regarding which drivers I should download manually from ASUS's website for my motherboard. I'm using the ASUS P8Z77-V LK http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813131837 I know I need the Chipset, USB, LAN & Audio drivers... but should I also download the SATA, VGA drivers as well? Thanks in advance for the help.

The AMD/NVidia VGA drivers are required You will also want to update the firmware ASAP jsjoe3030 July 12, 2012 4:08:48 PM Pinhedd said:The Intel SATA drivers aren't strictly necessary but are highly recommended. The AMD/NVidia VGA drivers are required You will also want to update the firmware ASAP Ok, I'll include the Mobo SATA driver just to be safe. I'll certainly install the AMD graphics card driver, just wasn't sure if i needed the on board VGA driver too. One (extremely newbish) question. When you say update the firmware, do you mean update to the lastest version of BIOS? Thanks for your help. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Pinhedd a b Ĉ ASUS a b \ Driver a c 145 V Motherboard July 12, 2012 4:16:51 PM yes. BIOS is the old standard for PC motherboard firmware. It is being replaced by EFI so I just say firmware to avoid referring to one in particular. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
