Which Motherboard do you have, and are you using the latest BIOS version

You say your PSU can handle it, which Power supply do you have?

my mothe
well, as long as i am adding in the correct cards and fans and the like ,it basicly says i am using most of my PSU about 330wattsmy power sup-ply is 500 peak watts,here is my motherboard and bios info.

BIOS Type: Phoenix-Award
BIOS Date: September 22nd 2005
BIOS ID: 09/22/2005-NF-CK804-A8NSLI-P-00-None
BIOS OEM: ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ACPI BIOS Revision 1008 - ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ACPI BIOS Revision 1008
Chipset: Athlon 1100 rev 0

Motherboard: A8N-SLI Premium
i have returned the video card in question and i am asking for your opinion on how to go about updating my bois and other drivers.
i went to the Phoenix website and they will of course help me with all of that for the low ,low price of 30.00,having done some research i found a bit cheaper version called Driver boost would u recommend i use that one?i will tell u what i would like to do.. is wipe the hard drive and bios and start over updating everything along the way,any ideas are welcome cause now my PC is having other issue`s that are related to the topic i discussed with u in another forum.

why donīt you go to the asus website and donwload the latest bios and the utility to flash it? itīs very easy and almost risk free.

Edit: I had the same board myself, and i was absolutly in love with it ;)
