AS to the powersupply comment, he stated it was running prior so unless this new board draws WAY more amps then the prior I feel he should be fine.

I am pretty sure A8N32-SLI doesn't have that, I have 2 PCI-E 16x Phisical (16x electrical) doesn't need that SLI switch.

Yea I just brought the users guide up on that board and found that out

Oh well, it DID state the EZPlug must be put in for SLI but I'm not running SLI on my i650 ASUS and I have it plugged in. Possible you forgot that incase it needs it? Grasping here, it's late -- sorries :|

ok As far as i know you DON"T need to Load the BIOS nor DOS. you can force it to go in to the BIOS Flash mode by hitting some keys, with the right software on the Floppy Disk or CD. If you system is TOO unstabe it will load the stuff from the Floppy by it self. Like it happend to me in Unstable overclocking it just Loaded up the Award BIOS Flash from the Driver CD from the mobo that was in the CD-ROM.
