The answers are in the Motherboard manual. Read the description for each one, decide whether you are going to use that feature and act accordingly.

Ya want sound ? ..... install the audio driver.
Ya want RAID ? ..... install the RAID driver.

well, i am not certain what you are trying to achieve.....looking at that list i would say the vga driver is useless, seeing as the 7870 has its own drivers.....but it would come in handy if the vid card dies. i do not understand why you need two usb drivers, but i dont know enough to do anything about it either. you could probably turn off the 3TB loader, til you get a 3TB drive

I just didn't wanted to install useless driver that would load with windows and slow my pc for no reason ... Its not the driver i want to install its just the recommanded driver list for my Motherboard and i dont know many of these program ... but well like humphrey said ill just read the MB manual but it dont speak about all of these and most of the time i see MB feature that slow down computer... or other like intel rapide respond which is really bad i heard ....
