software
ok new system just finished building, most of the software installed off disks, everything after a few hiccoughs seems to be working just fine. question i have is....is there a free utility that can help make sure ALL my drivers are up-to-date? a find many of them on sites i frequent, but they all do the same thing. You d-load, install and when you click the d-load update drivers...they want money. that's not freeware. it's not that i'm cheap, but i'm on a budget and this puter has broken it lol so i can't go around spending money on utilities i may never use again after i've set all software with auto-update options. auto-updates don't always work right away though.
i'm out of breath at the length of this, sorry bout that, just excited that i built my 1st puter despite a few problems and it hasn't blown up on me.

Re: software
Not that i am aware of. Just go to the various company websites for your parts. Takes some time but at least you know what you are getting.

RE: software
Normally just doing a windows update a few times finds all the basic drivers you need. Then go to the video card manufacturer's website for those updates (AMD or Nvidia). The 3rd newegg DIY video talks about motherboard/bios updates. What other drivers are you referring to? And no you shouldn't pay money for anything, unless it's an auto-updating anti-virus or anti-spyware program. I just use free ones, but they don't auto update.
