Issues with the Asus P5N-D?

Hey guys. After reading quite a lot of reviews on the asus P5N-D I was ready to buy this board. Then, out of curiosity, I decided to look at some more reviews since I was pretty excited. To my horror, I found that pretty much, 60% of the community who owned and Asus P5N-D MOBO, had the BSOD. (That percentage was just something I made up in my head, they aren't official Silly)

So, these were all dates to wayyy back in Late 2007 - Early, Mid 2008. I have not seen any reports of it still being an issue nowadays. So, is it? If it is and I get the BSOD, where can I download the latest drivers for the BIOS, since many people updated their BIOS and resolved the problem.

Many Thanks!

And what I'm finding is...

Many of these boards are fitted with RAM that the owners can't answer questions about Vram, timing and more.

Sadly many think if they buy ram from the same place as the board and one plugs into another it should work.

How do you tell them that more work is needed?

why are you looking at the asus p5nd?

that's an old board that's been superseded. it was based on nvidia's first attempt at a high performance intel chipset and, as many first attempts, it had a lot of problems.

the nvidia 750i is probably the best/most stable nvidia chipset for intel core2duo, but the only advantage is has compared to an intel chipset is support for sli. otherwise, i'd stick with the intel g31/g33 chipset for the budget conscious and the p45 for maintream performance.
