Custom Built Desktop Driver Updating?

Dear PcPartPicker Forums,

I bought a iBuyPower Trace930 awhile back, Now it is no longer for sale and iBuyPower is no help when it comes to this issue. I have already tried contacting them and tried the steps they told me to do. However, this resulted in it not working at all and almost all of it telling me I had "Special" drivers installed and needed to get my updates from iBuyPower Directly.

The issue I am having is I need to update my Desktop. I have been using Windows's Update system to update what I can but it doesn't update everything. Judging from the product numbers, and the labels on the hardware I have been able to recreate it using PcPartPicker which can be viewed here - https://pcpartpicker.com/user/BioLegion/saved/#view=GtngLk

The only thing I know of that is wrong on the list is the case, and the Wi-fi Adapter. As its a custom iBuyPower case, with a off-brand Wi-fi USB Adapter that I couldn't even find.

Would love it anyone could suggest to me on how to update these drivers. I tried the websites of the drivers which simply tell me they either don't detect the hardware/software or that its a specialized software update that you can only get from computer maker. Which claims they have no way of updating and to check with the hardware websites.

"The issue I am having is I need to update my Desktop."

Why????????

I only update drivers if it is needed. I am tired to fixing drivers that dont work out in the end or are unnecessary.

First place to look is your motherboard web site. Then for example, if you have a new BIOS update for the motherboard, ask yourself, does this specific update have anything to do with my system to improve performance, it not, I just pass.

I dont like to update just for updating

You didnt mention the reason for your problem to update. if no problem, system is running fine, pass
