System Built - Windows Installed - Install Software Tools?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My asus motherboard, msi video card, microsoft keyboard, logitech mouse, and asus monitor all came with software. I am a first time builder and only have experience with Dell Computers. Two questions. Should I install this software? Will this software slow the system down?

I also chose to only install important updates when Windows loaded the first time, as opposed to recommended settings. I am going step-by-step so I know where I screwed up if anything goes wrong.

On a positive note: I was terrified something was screwed up and it went through POST and installing Windows with zero difficulty.

go to nVidia for your 560 update, go to asus for the latest drivers like the onboard sound, go to logitech for their latest software, use windows update for the keyboard, and don't worry about the monitor

On every windows 7 build i've done, the only thing you need to download drivers for is the GPU. Everything else should automatically install via windows update.
