I would try to upgrade RAM to at least 2gb for 32 bit or 4gb for 64 bit though they will run with half that. However RAM is cheap so why not get the amount which is most recommended?

The Win7 installer is driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates when you enable hardware auto-updating: Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware

Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be imported from the SUpport Downloads webpage for your computer or device model. Driver Install - Device Manager - Windows 7 Forums

I would not change out drivers otherwise unless there is a performance reason to do so.
