I have FINALLY built my new PC and I have not gotten the driver updates for all the hardware yet. I am having trouble recognizing my two SLI videocards, 5.1 Soundcard, monitor, and Playing DVD's in the ROM drives. Will the updates fix a majority of these problems? Because They are showing that the computer can see them it is just not using them to thier full potential. What do you think?

Without the proper drivers those devices will not work properly, once you install the drivers then Windows will know what to do with them and they should then be fully functional.

Some Drivers instruct me "like the video cards" to uninstall the previous driver and then install the new one. should I do the same for the motherboard?

Normally, you can just install the new MB drivers. If they don't say uninstall previous versions, as a rule, it's not required.
