seems right

you don't need monitor drivers

btw, i don't think you need AC97 if you already got sound blaster

If he gets SP2 it will be, and if your getting a sound card disable the onboard sound in BIOS before installing anything..... And you dont have to worry about them drivers unless your using the onboard audio like me.

It will be on windows update..

the nvidia drivers include ac97 drivers.. make sure you get the newest unified driver package from www.nvidia.com. Once you install the newest drivers, go into the bios and disable the device..
