For the sound you should just install ALSA. I have the same chipset on my M2N-SLI DELUXE by ASUS.
For the motherboard, i'd like to know what drivers you would like? Your ethernet card which is onboard will by default use Forcedeth, which is normal for AFAIK all nvidia chipsets. For SLI you should use the appropiate ATI/NVIDIA drivers.

BTW, it's also possible to instead of installing ALSA software wise, too compile it with the kernel.

The ethernet card driver, with newer distributions, are default. If it's not, then you'll have to recompile the kernel. But in most distro's Forcedeth (YOUR ETHERNET DRIVER!) is pre-installed. I would recommend downloading ALSA from it's own site: www.alsa-project.org too ensure you have the latest version.

Furthermore if you should choose to use ALSA from the kernel, you need the INTEL_HD_AUDIO module.

Since your motherboard is an AMD one, i'd also suggest taking this NVIDIA driver for your GFX Card: THIS ONE (32BIT!)

You shouldn't need more.

Yep you might have a 64bit processor, but did you install a 64bit distribution ? If you did .. then this would be your link: THIS ONE (64BIT!!!)

For further reference, I would include such information in your first post . But in this case I forgot too ask!
