Hello, I'm building a PC for gaming, and a question I had about the motherboard is what comes on it? Will it have usb, Ethernet, sound card drives or do I need to gather them separately? And if so could I use driver pieces from a other motherboard if it is applicable with the one I am going to buy?

Thanks for the help :D

The motherboard comes with drivers for usb, ide, sata, ethernet, onboard sound, onboard graphics etc
If you are buying used you might have to go to manuf. website to download appropriate drivers for your operating system and specific motherboard.

If you are using discrete sound, video, NIC, sata cards etc use those supplied with those items or download latest drivers from manufacturers site

Actually, you don't need to load the drivers from the manufacturers site or use the CD. Windows will install most drivers automatically, but if it cannot determine the needed driver, or if it isn't available to Microsoft for whatever reason, you will be notified by the OS. With most drivers, it's a good idea to leave them alone unless there is some kind of issue, the exception to this is the graphics card driver.
