A LAN is a Local Area Network, whether it be through a Cable Modem to an onboard NIC (or an add in card) or whether there is a router or switch box.
The OB NIC must be enabled in the BIOS which it should be by default and the provided drivers on the CD should be installed.

You would be better served posting in a section intended for such questions. With PSU's you get what you pay for unfortunately, although there are a few exceptions. You probably want to look for a PSU between 500 and 600 watts, with greater than 70% efficiancy. You want a PSU that has a proven track record of supplying stable and consistent power, and with greater than 30 amps on the +12v rail would be ideal. Here are a few good ones:

PC Power & Cooling 510W
FSP Group 600W
SilverStone 560W
FSP Group 550W looks like it might be nice too.

So BIOS version 1.2 for this board is where it's at? What about the OCW BIOSes... those will let you get past 274 FSB...

(I'm building my new comp with this board in t-minus 36 minutes!!! OH YAEH!)

Chock up another one for the ASRock! Just completed my build last night, you can read all about it (and see some pictures of the vold mod) here. So far the board has treated me right. I get an error message when I come into windows that says I don't have enough power for my meaty vid card, (even though my PSU is 550W) I'm not sure what is causing that to happen... in any case that is a vid card/PSU issue, not a board issue. I did the volt mod right away since I had the board out of the case... I think you'd be crazy trying to do it without taking it out. Went pretty smoothly, used a piece of electrical tape to cover up the other solder points. Next I need to update my BIOS. OCW 1? Anyone?

triple post, hooray for me. Well hopefully someone will read this; I did the volt mod on my ASRock, and I just tested it out--set the Vcore to 1.40v in the BIOS and CPU-Z still reads it as 1.414v.... ummmm, is CPU-Z wrong? I doubt it... maybe I did not make good contact between the two solder points??? You can see the picture yourself in the other thread about this... anyone have any ideas?

If you did the Vcore volt mod where you solder or somehow connect Vid4 to the parallel SGND then it modifies your lower voltages. For example 1.075 would actually be 1.475, 1.100 would be 1.500. 1.125 would be 1.525, and 1.150 would be 1.550 volts. So you set it in the bios to one of those and it will reflect the adjusted voltage when you open CPU-Z, Speedfan or whatever. So CPU-Z is right about your 1.40 setting.

The official ASRock 1.2 bios does not have the 274 HTT cap like the OCW 1,2 &3 bios versions. The OverClock Workbench bios do have some beneficial features, but they are just has some default settings that are advantageous to overclocking. I have a thread in the AMD Bios section about this very thing, you might want to check it out.

I found that the OCW bioses are unstable, and cause my comp to run funny, so, I ditched them and went with the 1.2, and, so far, so good, so, thats what im sticking with, for the time being.
