Finally threw in the towel on my athlon 64 +3400 / 3650 agp setup and ordered me a i7 920 / 4870x2 setup. Should be here by thursday, the anticipation is killing me. Though the last time I touched a pentium processor was in the II era. So was looking for a heads up on what software/drivers our needed for windows. I'm planning on dual booting xp 64 and vista 64. I know my athlon cpu needed cpu drivers for xp as well as via drivers for the motherboard. Also needed xp to install the via agp hardware driver to take advantage of agp 3.0. I ordered a gigabyte ud5 motherboard, and a sapphire 4870x2 card. So will I need for xp to get the full potential of the hardware. Think vista pretty much updated, though maybe not. I've already guess i needed to install the latest bios for the motherboard, and all I could find on intel site was some processor identification software. Though I'm not sure if that installs drivers or not??
