Install the killer network drivers and the Msi update program from the motherboard disk, then reboot, run the updater app and install everything (you can unchecked the free Antivirus though). After that, reboot then go to amd.com and get the latest drivers for the gpu (14.7). Then go to the Msi site and grab any extra utility programs they have for your gpu (not the catalyst app though as you already have the most updated one from amd). Then see if cooler Master has any special drivers for your mouse and keyboard on thier site. That's it.

The killer network drivers must be first installed from the disc or you can't get online... Dont install anything else from the disks... All the updated stuff is all online.

From that site, just go to utility then live Update 6. That app will get all the rest for you in one shot and check for updates weekly.
