You may not need any. Windows 7 is pretty driver complete, especially after doing a few Windows Updates.

You would be better off doing an image backup of the entire hard drive to an external hard drive. That way if things go wrong you can just restore the image and you right back where you were when the image was created.

Do this on a regular basis.

Since there is no way to tell which ones you will need until you reinstall XP, do as JiniOnline says and download the latest one of each.

Ok the newest one for each is at the top of each section. Like
Graphics-drivers
Ati control panel
Workstations graphics 2009
Workstation graphics 2008

Just download the ati control panel or do I need to download the workstation driver as well ? Srry just want to be safe. Basically what I'm saying is do I just download the newest one for each section like graphics, bios etc... Or do I have to download the newest type of each kind like the ati control panel and workstation are two differant drivers but under the same section (graphics) srry plz just answer that last question then I know all that I need to know. Thanks
