Basically im currently using a Acer T180 (yes very old)

Decided to make a new one (new cpu/motherboard/power supply/graphics card), basically almost everything. Just wondering if i could use Acer's drivers for anything i left behind (lan card for example).
(Does that even require a driver?) But i remembered installing it after i reformatted

You will get all the drivers needed (on CD) when buying new products. If your new motherboard has on-board lan (most of the new ones do!!) then there will also be a CD provided.
