You may not need to install any of them... Go to the device driver page and look for any devices with a yellow triangle... note what they are, then download the coresponding driver from the mobo's website..let us know if you have any problems..

You certainly want to download the latest Ethernet and sound drivers.

alright. I'm using a wireless adaptor though, does the ethernet driver do anything to that?

P.S. this basically means all the drivers for this mobo are optional?

edit: what are the Intel chipset drivers for?

Here is a definition of what your chipsets do. What does your Chipset actually do? This is why it is always important to keep them upto date. It helps with preformance.
