I wanted to know if i should download all the drivers from ASUS website and run them all using the ASUS utility one ob one or it is not necessary and Win 7 will automatically download the required drivers from the website ?

Well windows typically will find default drivers that will work, for best performance you should go to ASUS and download all their recommended drivers. You don't need all the tools, but I would recommend the drivers.

The ASUS website has a list-to be safe anything that says driver. But what you need for sure are

A: chipset drivers

B: sound

C: network (already have those)

D: Video (if your using integrated video card, otherwise, download those from your video card manufacturers website)

All the utilities can be nice tools for the intermediate to advanced users, but are not necessary for the average user.
