hi

Sunday the 8th of October sees me building my first ever pc. Can any one let me know what drivers I should get ready to install.

This is the shopping list sitting on the side waiting for me to put it all together in a wonderfull lil zalman z9 plus case.

Asus M4A89GTD PRO.USB3 AMD 890GX SATA6
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Six Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3
Western Digital WD1002FAEX 1TB Caviar Black SATA6GB/S 7200rpm 64MB
Corsair 8gb (2x4gb) Ddr3 1600mhz Low Profile Vengeance Memory Kit Cl9 1.35v
Corsair Memory TX650 V2 650W ATX
Windows 7 prof 64

If some one with knowledge could help me out please I would be very gratefull.

I have read alot and learnt loads in the last few months but any expert knowledge would be awesome.

Here is the link to my motherboards options. http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A89GTD_PROUSB3/#download

I don't think he's going to game anyway. NO GPU. Anyway your PSU is overkill but if you've bought it then whatever. If you haven't a 430w would easily power that.

I am intending on buying a graphics card in November (as I have run out of money). The board does come with a Radeon 4290 onboard which should do for a month. This will be such a vast improvement on my single core, 1gb ddr400 7 year old system that I am using at the moment.

I am going to do a little gaming but I am also going to be using photo and movie editing software. ( plus I got a very good deal on the 6 core)

Thanks for your links,I will check them out.
