Drivers I need for my Asus Prime Z270-A motherboard. BIOS questions also

Greetings

I'm building my PC soon and wanted to make sure I downloaded all the needed drivers for my Asus Z270 Prime-A motherboard. Here is the Asus driver site for my board:

https://www.asus.com/us/support/Download/1/50/8/7/raDdHADFSa42GEuM/45/

I know I need the chipset, audio and lan drivers. Do I need anything else? The VGA driver is for the onboard videocard (I have a GTX 1070) so I don't need the VGA driver? Do I need to install the Sata driver or anything else?

Also when I update my BIOS (Assuming my motherboard will come with an outdated BIOS), will I lose all the current settings? Or will the settings stay when I update the BIOS? I'm planning on updating the BIOS before installing Windows 10 64 bit.


Thanks
