If you want to install software in an "in order" way then after getting the OS installed, install the video drivers then the Nvidia drivers. As for Dell apps, I do not suggest installing them as they eat system resources; and I do not suggest installing their ESA software. Install this instead: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia_sys ... _6.03.html

Instal these for your Video drivers:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_winvi ... _whql.html

Install these for the Network: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_vista_15.25.html

Windows will install the Sata drivers etc. hope this helps.


Applications : Sonic Solution - Application === Roxio Creator 10
Audio : Realtek -Driver === ALC888 HD Audio
Bios : Dell - BIOS === XPS 630 System BIOS This is not a reinstall - Flash only Caution
Chipset : nVidia - Driver === SMBus
Diagnostics : Dell - Diagnostics Utility === 32 Bit Diagnostics (Graphical User Interface Version ) Do not install
Network : nVidia - Diagnostic Utility === nForce Networking Controller
Network : nVidia - Driver === Network Integrated Controller
SATA Drivers : nVidia - Application === MediaShield
SATA Drivers : nVidia - Driver === MediaShield
System Utilities : Dell - Application === System Utilities ESA Do not install
System Utilities : Dell - Application === ESA Performance Do not install
System Utilities : Dell - Firmware === System Utilities ESA Do not install
System Utilities : Dell - Utility === Desktop System Software Do not install
Video : nVidia - Application === GeForce 9800 GT

After the OS the first thing to install is the chipset. Then the others in the order of the last post.
