I'm trying to install my i7-3770k on my motherboard, but before I do that, the Asrock motherboard website for my H61M-HVS motherboard, is saying that I need to install an Intel HD (VGA) Graphics driver before installing my i7-3770k.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&os=BIOS&Model=H61M-HVS

I'm wondering if it's really necessary? Because I already updated my Bios and downloaded all the other stuff for my motherboard, except the Intel HD graphics driver, since for some reason, the setup is saying "this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software."

My PC specs currently btw:
CPU: Intel i5-2380p
Motherboard: Asrock H61M-HVS
GPU: GTX 560 2gb ram
OS: Windows 7 x64

There's no need to install it beforehand. There's no need to install it at all if you're never gonna use it.
