Just built my first desktop.

In regards to all of the "utility" updates, I assume I do not have to install all of them?

Windows 10 Pro 64

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherbo...support-dl

I updated the BIOS and I will update the following "Drivers"

CHIPSET
CREATIVE
GIGABYTE Intel ME Critical FW Update Utility
INTEL LAN
INTEL VGA

I will update the following "Utility"

THUNDERBOLT
Thunderbolt FW Update Tool

Let me know if you see anything else I should update or not. Thanks.

You dont need to install any utility unless you use those features.

Even if you don't use it you want the Intel ME update as it patches a security vulnerability. As far as the rest under Utility section, the stuff is bells and whistles mostly. Install them if you need it.
