The brand name and exact model number of your motherboard is needed so we can locate its support site and drivers download section.

We also need to know which Windows version(7, 8.1, 10) you plan to install and use.

Depending on whether you have revision 1.0 or 1.1 of that motherboard, here are their U.S. support sites:

Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0)

Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.1)

Click "Support", then select "Windows 7 64bit" for the Windows operating system(OS).
The list of drivers will appear.

Select each driver that you need, then select the global location to download it from.

The Intel INF chipset and Creative audio and Intel ethernet(LAN) and Intel graphic(VGA) and USB drivers are the primary ones you should need.
You may need some other drivers, but I have no way of knowing that from here.

If a user manual didn't come with that motherboard, click "Manual" so you can download a copy of it.

Have you put your computer together and installed Windows 7 64-bit in it?
All that needs to be done first before you can install any drivers in it.

If you have access to another computer that has an internet connection, use it to download and save the needed drivers.
Once that's done, copy the drivers to a USB thumb drive or burn them to a CD/DVD.
Once that's done, use that media to install the needed drivers.
Make sure to install the chipset and USB drivers first before installing any of the other drivers.

If you don't know how to do all this, you need to ask someone who does to help you.
It's impossible for anyone to help you from here.

There's one more thing that I didn't think about earlier.
Which 6th or 7th generation Intel processor are you installing in that motherboard?
If it's a 7th generation Intel processor, Windows 7 may not install.
And even if it does install, it may block Windows updates from installing.
