Windows 7 compatible printers

I am attempting to buy a printer that is compatible with Windows 7 that is installed on my computer.  I note that there are some printers that indicate they are windows 7 ready.  When I read further I note I have to download a driver for the printer. My question: I assume that I buy the printer and have it sent to my home. When I hook up the printer at what point in time do I go online to down load the drive for windows 7 compatibility. After i insert the included cd to download printer specs to my computer or before. I am a greenhorn when it comes to this stuff so I need all the help I can get.
