Hi I am new to this forum and not a real experienced computer person but am learning.  I have an MSI 790FX-GD70 mother board and just installed windows 8 pro 64bit this morning to try it out.  When got the motherboard (couple of years ago) it came with a disc that had chipset drivers, Lan and pci-e drivers ect.   MSI does not have the chipset drivers offered for windows 8.  The system seems to be working fine but I found windows 8 drivers at the following link looking around. My question is should I install the chipset drivers and other drivers?  Will it make a difference? 

Thanks for any advise!

If you are running a AMD GPU then you are getting the chipset drivers that you need ,it`s all  incorperated in the Catalyst drivers.

Is that why I can't find the chipset driver download page anymore?

The page I have bookmarked takes me to a search page now.

My chipset is the A70M, that's included in the catalyst?

So all the drivers, chipset,usb 3.0,etc., are packaged into the Catalyst version?
