LOL! <like a Frisbee-i luv it!!! ROTF!> Ok. i did download all of the updates i THOUGHT i needed, but i'd better go back to the ASUS site. The 0906 BIOS is the same - that is the one installed. The ATI-SMBus Must be the on-board graphics; i'm not really using that yet - but i would like to know more about the GPU NOS and how i can connect it to my Nvidia card (or if i should) - will go to ASUS for that. As for the RAID Controllers... gotta read up on that & refresh my memory :-). Thanks.
