Yes, it would be a good idea to make sure you have the drivers BEFORE you wipe it clean. In fact, it wouldn't hurt to back up the whole drive before you do. A lot of times, the network driver is one of the ones that windows won't install with a new install. Without the network connection, you have no internet. It's a pain in the ass to have to use another machine to go get the drivers.
