    There is a new set on the Mobo homepage ( I say new probably 6 weeks old) do I really need to install these as I vaguely recall reading that the GFX drivers from AMD have all chipset stuff built in

    Need them or not need them ?

    never get the chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer.... get them directly from intel or amd (depending on which branded chipset you have)

    The same applies for graphics drivers or sound drivers where possible.

    Cheers Judas, So I can just assume that these are included in the AMD driver update... cool

    AMD Chipset drivers are not included in the Graphics driver... Two separate things. And as said above. always get them from AMD website.
