    I will soon be building a new computer using all new parts on a fresh installation of Windows 7 64 Bit. I don't want to install the outdated drivers and utilities on the installation CD. Is it recommended to install all of the drivers and utilities shown on the download page?

    If not, what drivers and utilities are required? Thanks.

    Yes, use the drivers on the drivers page. Make sure to update your BIOS also.
