I also have a noob question so please dont make fun of. How do you upadate your MOBO's BIOS?????? I have an ASUS A8n Sli Deluxe mobo. I know you have to download them and put on floppy but then im lost. I was goin to download Bios 1016 (mine is 1002) but it said i need nviada chipset 6.65 and mine is only 6.00 so i downloaded that too but i have to put on floppy too. im soo confused. Can anyone tell me how to upadate BIOS and Chipset please???

Sorry about noob question.

Well if that's the case, I'd probably pick a different MOBO. From what I've seen, and only this I don't have any personal experience with AMD processors yet, the Xpress200 chipset isn't very good. I'd go with an NF4 based board instead.

Ya those are nice MOBOs but im trying to make a budget box. I am goin to use onboard vid till i need to upgrade. i was thinkin o fgettin the nviada 6100 or ATIX 200. I heard that the the X200 has better onboard graphics but im not sure about other stuff.
