    First ROG mobo, Gene Z. Whats best driver install sequence?

    Ok, im finally upgrading my aging C2D E8500 GTX 260 setup with my first ROG mobo, the Gene Z mATX board. I've been reading alot of good things about it and though I dont' plan on overclocking hardcore, it seems this mATX board has a good reliablity track record, as most of my past Asus boards have done for me over the years

    Below is my new build "Black Ice II"


    New Intel Core i5 2500k
    New ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z
    New Red G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
    New eVGA GTX 570 Superclocked
    WD Caviar Black 640 AALS
    New X-Fi Titanium
    Antec TruePower New 550w
    Antec mini P-180
    Xigmatek Dark Knight
    Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
    New Dell U2412M


    I've gotten the latest drivers and what not downloaded but im wondering whats the best pattern to install the drivers after I load up Windows 7? I will not be doing RAID or SSD on this setup

    Interesting. I don't think anyone has ever asked that before, that I have seen at least.

    The way I do it is in this order:

    Chipset
    Video
    Sound
    X-fi
    SSD
    Ethernet
    Mouse

    On my past builds i've usually done it:

    1. Chipset
    2. Ethernet
    3. Video
    4. Soundcard
    5. Full windows update
