    S...e...x

    I thought that I would use that as an intention getter!!!

    Unlike the subject I do have a question....I am going to format and resetup Win XP proff....My question is...."do I have to put on the drivers in any certain order...(ex. Video before sound and vise versa)......And do I need to update the 4 in 1's??? From what I have gathered, windows XP handels them very well........I am asking this because this is an on going debate between me and my friends........thanks for any help!!!!!!!!

    The Via drivers support all via chip sets.

    My personal order of installing is.....

    Motherboard
    Graphics card
    Sound card
    Modem
    anything else internal
    The all the external stuff
