when theres new drivers, do i install the new ones and delete the old ones or leave them there

Honestly ASRock probably won't update the drivers to frequently, so there isn't much to worry about there. I've had the p67 extreme4 since last august, and just now had to update a couple Intel drivers because I went to a newer UEFI (bios).

But yeah, it's generally a good idea to run the uninstaller (if there is one), reboot, then install the new drivers. I did update the Realtek audio drivers back when I was using the on-board.

im just installing the drivers of the disc that came with it because the files on my thumb drive were corrupt

later I may go through and update them but as u said, they probably havent changed much

After installing the drivers, there is a handful of crap i want to get rid of: zynga games, smart view, norton, media espresso, (i don't need any of these right?)

how do i delete them? also, what anti-virus software should i get? I'm currently barebones with no protection

Yeah, uninstall all of that stuff, it all sounds like bloatware. For a descent free AV solution you can always use the Microsoft Security Essentials, found here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials

It's free to download with an activated copy of Windows 7.

Oh, that's odd, I've never installed that, so I'm not sure how to get rid of it. I would try removing it from appwiz.cpl, then searching the c:\ drive for anything zynga related. Or try their website, maybe they have a support FAQs for removing it.

Yeah, get rid of that too.

What I do to avoid that is to change my user folder over to the HDD, check out Sean Webster's SSD/HDD guide I linked you on the 2nd or 3rd post, he has directions in there. That way everything like game saves, downloads, my pics, my music, etc is on the larger HHD. You could also just change the default download directory in your browser's preferences if you just care about the downloads.
