    Would you agree with the following order sequence?

    XP Pro
    Service Pack 2
    DirectX 9.0c December '05 update
    ULI integrated 2.13 drivers
    Realtek audio drivers
    AMD dual-core driver
    M$ dual-core fix
    Nvidia Forceware drivers


    Thanks in advance :)

    I normally go:

    OS, Service Packs + updates, mobo drivers, cpu drivers then the rest of the drivers.

    Check out the sticky... plenty of info in there too

    I've never noticed any difference from installing drivers/updates first or last etc.

    I haven't really. Only reason I do it in the order I do is mostly security. The more updates I can get on my PC before installing other software the better.
