    Feel free to take a baseball bat or equivalent to my head, got home from work, checked my google drive, was smart enough to upload it there. Thanks for the help!

    Intel RST VMD F6 Floppy driver

    I did check Acer's website, supposedly hosted by dell, but without a serial #, can't get anywhere there.

    Intel RST VMD F6 Floppy driver

    If only that were true, but I do need it, can't disable VMD in BIOS either.

    Looking at the Linus Tech Tips PSU Tier list, the ION line by Fractal is in their top tier, but if you share the UL code, someone can cross-reference who makes it actually, and give you the better idea, but should be fine for the new system. I'd go for whichever motherboard is more robust...
