The PSU did have the 4+4 connector, so im all good. Set everything up last night, but thanks to comcast, i got extremely annoyed and thought there was a problem with my network adapter.
Comcast went down sometime between me taking apart my old PC, and plugging in my new one, so i thought the "no internet access" was because of the new computer, but it was just shitty comcast crapping out.
So i did get everything all set up and plugged in, just didnt get a chance to go and install all my drivers and set everything up
Tonight is the night!
Which order should i install my drivers in? does it matter?
I usually do chipset>network stuff>video card>everything else. Then i do windows update until its fully up to date.
I tried installing as many drivers as i could off of the cd first, but stil had some exclamation points in my device manager. I hate installing crapware, andi usually just download everything from website. extract with 7zip, and then install through device manager instead of the executable file. Good idea?
whats "Intel Management Engine Interface" btw? I installed it, but not sure what it is.
also according to this:http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=4139#dl
do i have two different kinds of network adapters?
which of those SATA/RAID drivers do i really need?
do i need to install my video driver even though i wont be using the integrated graphics?
Any other things i should consider that is new or has changed if i were coming from the year 2007? lol
