Question Which drivers?

I am getting ready for a build and collecting all my necessary drivers so I can put them on a cd... and i have a quesiton about CPU drivers... I got an AMD athlon X2 4400+ so I went to the driver page on the amd website.... http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/..._13118,00.html

Which of those drivers do i need to install??? I am not sure if i need any of those? Help is very much appreciated!

Default Re: Which drivers?

my guess would be that it automatically installs it.... i now that it installs it for intel while windows gets installed...i'm pretty sure that windows will automatically detect the amd processor. if i'm worng, i'm sure someone will post.

and for the link, it looks like them are for linux.

edit: sorry about that, looks like maybe u do install drivers for xp, either get the "AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor Driver for Windows XP x64 Edition and Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions Version (exe) 1.2.2" or the "AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor Driver for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Version (exe) 1.2.2" , depending on what version of windows u got (64 or 32 bit)
