Your question

What is my current chipset driver version. And your thought on upgrade

January 10, 2013 1:41:53 PM

My rig
OS: window 8
Motherboard: M2N32-SLI DELUXE (I know its old but I'm a noob so its my experimenting comp)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6000+
Chipset: SPP190 (C51XE)
Southbridge: nforce 590 SLI
Ram: 2 (DDR2 Crucial Tech. PC2-6400 (400 MHz) 1 Gig)
GPU: GeForce gt 430
Sound card: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium

This is a two part question:

I know my bios version (acpi bios revision 5002, it was published in 2010 I believe. Is it the most current?)
but CPU Z does not tell me what my current Chipset driver version is.

Anyone know how to find this info. I believe I have 15.58-nforce-winvista-win7-64bit-international-whql. seeing as I just finished running that installer. I downloaded it from (It was published in 2011. Is this the most current driver I can install )

I would however like to verify what version is on my puter. How do I go about looking that up? I found this . But to no effect. My Intel folder did not have the Infinst file even after running the Nvidia intaller.

after all drivers are up to date (bios, chipset, graphic card, and sound card... am i missing any) i plan to upgrade to the maximum cpu and dual sli graphics card the board can handle. any recommendations

current CPU I am looking at is AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition (I have read good things about this CPU's compatibility with my Motherboard)
current GPU I'm considering are 2 GeForce GTX 560TI's

Okay that about sums it up.
Lots of questions here dont worry if you dont know all the answers. I know I don't and I am asking so I can learn. Thoughts, opinions, and good reading sources on all the above are welcome.

Many Thanks
