Question Gygabyte 990FX UD5 debian driver


Im looking for gygabyte 990FX UD5 mobo debian drivers.
Gygabyte took me to AMD supot page but i just can figure wich is the driver. Besides, ive got to download every driver from the chip provider in the mobo, ie: sound card driver from ###, usb controler driver from ####.
Is there any place where i can download everything together?

What problems do you encounter when installing Debian?
It seems at least one person on the Debian forums has one so I would guess most if it will work with no additional drivers needed.

AMD support page?

You shouldnt need to download and install drivers for the chipset or any of the devices run from the chipset (eg USB 2.0 ports) with any current version of debian. The sound, USB 3.0 and network chips should work out of the box as well.

Linux isnt windows, you dont have to run around installing drivers for the chipset and motherobard mounted peripherals in most cases.
