Default DLing drivers

Hey, I just built my new computer and I am confused about the motherboards drivers. The mobo is a Asus M3A78-CM. CPUZ tells me my version number is 1302.

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

Do I need to download everything on that page? I believe there is 66 files. Or do I just need the things under category "Bios" Also, will I need to download every update since my versio0n number up to the current, or can I just download the current even though I am two steps behind it.

It would be best to be up-to-date on the BIOS, chipset, audio, video (VGA) and LAN. (Unless you use add on cards of course) You don't necessarily have to download all of these from the motherboard vendors website, as they're not always up-to-date.

Asus shows EVERYTHING. I'd install from the cds, then d/l only he new ones.

If you look there's 11 bios ones...2 newer than yours, but unless its broke.. who cares.

But anyway just d/l te major ones mentioned abo.ve

I am running a video and sound card, those drivers are up to date. So Ill just get the BIOS, chipset and LAN then. Is there a way of telling what version LAN and chipset I have?
