    You can update using the official AMD website. WARNING: DO NOT update using the GPU manufacturers website unless sometimes where they release better ones. To know how to, go to this website: https://www.amd.com/en/support and choose the gpu you have. Afterwards simply navigate to the latest version of drivers and download them and install it. (The download file will be an EXE file. )

    You do not need to update drivers unless there is a reason to do so. For the latest bios updates on many amd chipset boards, you do need to update the chipset driver prior to doing any bios update. As I said before unless you need to update a driver, the current one is fine.

    When you install windows, it is done in the following order;
    1 Install the latest build of win10 by making a bootable usb using the media creation tool
    2 Once the operating system is installed, install the chipset/motherboard driver first
    3 After the chipset driver is installed, then install the sound, nic/lan drivers
    4 Install the video driver
    5 Install any utilities you need ie monitoring software, ccleaner, etc, etc
    When all done and activated, make a backup image and store the image on an external drive, second hd, NAS, etc. If you ever need a clean install, it takes all of 5min to restore the image. Clean install with drivers done.
