As an example, after you install Windows XP and there’s no VGA driver installed, to open an application is very slow, especially when you open games which need graphic strong resources. Some standard hardware has pre-installed in windows XP such as CDROM, Keyboard, Mouse and the others. But chipset Motherboard driver, VGA Card, and Net Card mostly not pre-installed. So, after you install your operating system, make sure you install Driver CD bundled with your motherboard when you buy it.
