Yup, that's how I found it, a Google link. Pretty lame that Google has to be the way to find something on nVidia's own web site. I kept getting confused by all these postings mentioning the -256 release that I couldn't find on their site. I ended up finding it using Google. Anyway, glad that you found it, thanks for posting it since I'm sure many others will need to use that.

I ran across a link on the asus website with drivers for the A7N8X boards. They say to only use asus drivers. Seems to me that for some reason, the standard Nvidia drivers are not compatible with the Asus boards, something to do with the sound card, although it has been a while since I read that and I do not remember where.

Originally Asus modified a little the audio specs from what nVidia specified. Therefore one needed Asus' drivers to get it to work; if one used nVidia's, the audio was not functional since it was different than what nVidia's drivers expected.

Nevertheless, that was when the board was released. It's been a long time since nVidia inserted compatability with the A7N8X (Deluxe too) into their drivers, so it's safe to say that nVidia's drivers work now okay. I am using nVidia's drivers in both Linux and WinXP, and they work more than okay. Besides, Asus' drivers are now quite old, hehehe.

So, there should be no problem using nVidia's drivers now. Go get them!
