Default Driver questions, HELP (please)

hey guys, got my new rig up and running, but confused over which mobo drivers i need, my motherboard is an ASUS a8n-e non SLI motherboard with a x16 PCI-E slot, it is a nforce4 chipset, anyways, i looked on nvidia.com and i have found 2 drivers for nforce4 chipsets, ones for amd, and one for x16, which one do I need?

Or should i just get the asus MoBo drivers for it, or are they all the same?

Listings are:

Nforce4 AMD
Nforce4 Intel
Nforce4 AMD/Intel X16

Thanks again guys.

Didn't your puter mobo come with a driver installation cd? I presume it did, so use that cd. ?????
