Motherboard Drivers, needed?

Hi.
My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-M61VME-S2.
On their site for windows 7 there is only the realtek audio drivers.
However, there are vistra drivers.
I installed windows 7 and the connection to the internet is working(on xp without the chipset drivers there was no internet connection).
Should I try to install the vista drivers or it is unnecessary? Everything is working ok as far as I can tell.
(I did installed the win 7 nvidia drivers for my graphic card)
Thanks.

Like others said, as long as there are no yellow question marks (?) in your device manager you're good to go

I would keep the windows 7 drivers myself as long as it's working and there are no errors or little yellow symbols then leave it.

I have to also AGREE with the others.... IF it works., LEAVE IT ALONE.
attempting to update when it works usually leads to problems.
