I would only trust Windows 7 and beyond to have decent somewhat up to date versions of these preinstall drivers. I don't know how up to date Gigabyte has kept the drivers for your board, but the difference in versions between the original X58 board drivers and the latest ones is substantial.
You can always install a newer version of a driver over an earlier version without first uninstalling the older version first.

There are exceptions to this, such as video drivers for video cards, although removing the old driver is not always required. All of the basic drivers and utility programs you are using can be installed over whatever version is installed. The only installation program you should run first, before any others, is the Chipset drivers Intel INF installation program. That identifies the Intel hardware on a board for the other driver installation programs. Personally, I install all my drivers before I allow any Windows updates to be installed.
Since drivers can affect the performance and functioning of hardware, why would I want less than optimal performance while installing the endless Windows updates?

I also do not connect network cables to the PC during a Windows installation, to prevent it from installing things I don't want installed, including drivers. I also don't allow any automatic updates to be installed, I let them be listed and choose what I want to be installed.
I have no need for Chinese or Japanese font updates, as people in those countries will have no need for daylight savings time updates for the USA. But this is just my way of doing things, which does not mean it is how everyone should do it, or that it is better than other methods.

This is exactly the kind of information I was looking for. Having built this computer myself, my second build, in fact, I consider myself far from computer illiterate. But I'm also just as far from what one would call an expert.
While I understand a lot of what I read posted on these forums, much of it is too technical and goes right over my head.
I'll also have two additional drives, each 1TB, to hold E: There is currently an additional GB hard drive in my computer that serves as sort of a utility drive. Because I'm still not confident how well or how long an SSD will run over time, I plan to install a duplicate but operational copy of Windows 7 on this drive and leave it disconnected in one of the drive bays.
This drive will lay dormant in my computer coming to life only in the event the SSD ceases to function one day. That way I'll be able to see some of the problems I might encounter with MB driver upgrades and those darn Windows Updates. But since I'd never seen anyone comment about it on these forums, I assumed the USB ports would be functioning, though I could never quite understand why.
Your remarks clarified this for me and as a result, I'm transferring all needed files to one of the 1 TB hard drives which I'll plug in after Win7 has been installed. I'll install drivers from there. I've checked all of the Gigabyte MB files and they are not zip files but are in fact executables. I still plan to insert the original CD, let it scan my system and load the appropriate drivers.
Once that's done, I'll update them by clicking on the executables I've saved to the 1 TB hard drive, right-clicking on them in order to Run as Administrator. I have some additional questions which I'll post below, since this response is already too long.
Thank you, again. Originally Posted by parsec.

So I downloaded one for fun, and saw that it is really a 7-Zip file 7z , which must be extracted.
I used the America and Asia links, and every file I tried was a 7-Zip file. If you have found uncompressed files somewhere, I don't know where they are.
Not a big deal at all either way. Ahh, fear of SSD failure, I suppose that is reasonable from someone that has rarely or never used one. I have never had even one of my SSDs fail.
Never returned one for replacement, or had to RMA it. Otherwise it sounds like a great idea! I suppose it would work with Windows 8, but MS seems to have improved the delivery of updates in Win 8, offering monthly combined updates in one package. Plus the number of Win 8 updates is at this time much less than Win 7. That is, at one time it's possible the USB 2. Or the USB ports were 1.
Windows 7 does not have a native USB 3. However, there will be a few updates that may still be needed through regular windows update online such as monthly malicious software removal tool and other important security based files and dotnet updates. Never hurts to run the windows update afterwards. Same applies for windows 8 as in Windows 7. I think that restriction on those and other files is a Microsoft Security policy.
