Thx so for the response. Didn't think my post got thru.
Yes, my sentiments entirely. They have made the suggestion, but not advised
what version. Been on to asus mb site and they have been really supportive.
asus, themselves, don't go into any great detail. They suggest the latest
version for a particular mb (beta in my case), but turns out the chipset
isn't ideally applicable. I wish the comp manufacturer would do their
homework. Trouble is, if the computer is returned, they don't have the
reputation for quick service. Not doing well in the 'support' dept either!
