You should only have to install the necessary apps. If u don't use splendid or gaming mouse, don't install it.

As for drivers, check device manager. If u don't see any "!" Marks, it good. Windows update takes care of most drivers if not all.

Asus support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1) is where you will find the latest driver for your notebook. ATK package is required everything else is optional for your wants. I would advise going into windows update settings and turn off driver updates, install the ones from Asus except for NVidia. Which you get NVidia the lasts. The drivers windows wants to install sometimes don't work as well the ones verified to work on Asus downloads. If you don't turn off drivers updates windows will keep installing the ones they think you should have!!!
