    I assume you'll be running Windows XP

    and you'll want Chipset or Platform Driver, which will give you the VIA Hyperion 4in1 drivers

    The 4-in-1 drivers will come with your new mobo, you shouldn't need to download anything.

    Alternatively use the x64 evaluation version of XP, it has all the latest drivers built in.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    yeah, it WILL come with drivers, but i never use the drivers anything comes with. i always dl the newest ones. so, all i need is the 4-in-1's? i don't need to get the 4in1's and the audio, and the video, and the ethernet and the....? the 4in1's ARE all those in 1? hence 4 in 1?

    Watch out for the latest drivers as they remove the ability to change the DMA Mode on IDE Channels.
    Also blocks 3rd party apps from getting readings(SMART) from your HDD's...ie:SpeedFan,EverestHomeEdition,SisoftSandra2005 etc
