Is anything not working correctly? if not then id say your fine. Normaly I would put mother board drivers on first. Depending on what the are.

It doesnt matter which order you load the drivers. I always try to make sure that one of the first things working is means to connecting to the internet either a NIC or modem. That way if any of the other devices have issues you can download drivers for them.
