How do I install extra drivers?

I have just successfully built my first computer last night. I went through the boot menu and got Ubuntu 12.10 installed properly and everything. My question what? There has to be some sort of drivers I need to install right? I can't connect to wi-fi or anything of that sort. I have an ASUS motherboard, model number M4N98TD EVO , and an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 grpahics card.

I guess my main question is, can someone run me through step by step what I need to do after I install Ubuntu?

Open ubuntu software center.

From Edit menu choose software sources

There is a tab Addtional driver. Check it, it should list all the proprietary driver you required.

If the above doesn't solve your problem and you have USB wi-fi adapter, the software installation is bit complex. We need more details of card. Mean while you can look through this

I went to the additonal drivers tab and it says "No proprietary drivers are in use." I don't know what I need or if I even have what I need to get the wi-fi to work. – Nick Dec 1 '12 at 17:15
what is your wifi device? is it USB? if so connect it and post result of lsusb (run the command in terminal) – Web-E Dec 1 '12 at 17:19
I don't know what a wifi device is. I didn't know I need one. – Nick Dec 1 '12 at 17:22
you said I can't connect to wi-fi or anything of that sort .. so you want to connect to a wi-fi network and it's a desktop right.. so you need a wi-fi adapter to connect to. If everything is working you don't need to worry about drivers in ubuntu – Web-E Dec 1 '12 at 17:30
Ahh, I see. I found this in my basement, will it work?… – Nick Dec 1 '12 at 17:55
