Finally building my own rig
You can download the drivers from the manufacturer's sites, which is sometimes more up to date that what is on the CD.

Edit: was too fast to hit send here. Lol. Something you already know, but will say it anyway. Dont flash your bios/uefi unless you have problems during your build that it addresses. Aka... Aint broke, dont touch it. Smile

Re: Finally building my own rig
Use your laptop to download the network drivers for the mobo. The rest can be downloaded from the desktop once you're connected online.

Re: Finally building my own rig
Sweet almost a week later and Amazon has finally shipped my stuff. It's funny, Amazon and Newegg had the exact same time frame for shipping my stuff but I got my Newegg stuff in three days.

RE: Finally building my own rig
Directly from Amazon or from 3rd party sellers on Amazon?

RE: Finally building my own rig
So my father in law had a monitor sitting in the closet that he gave me. I was wondering what you all thought about this monitor. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6824260052 It feels like an unusual resolution at 1600 x 900. The "monitor" that I had planned on using is 1920 x 1080. http://www.amazon.com/iSymphony-LC24IF56...B004PYEO2C Yes I know it's pink but I am using what I already have lol.


edit - It feels so strange looking at stuff on both screens and on my laptop screen. I think I like the dell monitor more, it feels like the colors are more crisp and clear. How will my build run things on that dell monitor? With it being such a strange resolution will it hurt anything?

The pink monitor seems like a much better monitor on specifications. I would use the one you like most and see what is on sale Black Friday as you might find a nice monitor for a longer term solution.
