Ok so this is my first ever time building a pc. I'm not the best with computers so I have some questions before I start installing things onto my pc. I should be getting all of these components in the next 2-3 days.

My question is how many of these will come with a dvd to update the drivers? Also, am I going to have to go on each manufactures website and make sure I have the most up to date drivers? (is there any of these parts that don't ever need driver updates or does every computer part typically need updated drivers?

Thanks for the help <3

It would be wise to go to all the sites and download the latest drivers, it'll greatly improve performance and such.
