    Hello all,
    It has been a over 5 years since I built a computer and wanted to know if
    there is a document that explains "ALL" of the bios options in detail? I
    have read the manual but as many of you know, there are some terms that
    could be explained a lot better.

    My current configuration for gaming:
    AMD FX57
    (2) eVGA 7800GTX video card in SLI
    500Gb Hitachi Hard Drive

    Thanks for the URL but I was thinking of a document focused on this
    motherboard. For example, what does the "Advanced Chipset Settings" mean
    and why would you change them. Specifically the "Primary Graphics Adapter"
    setting, PciE1->PCI->PciE2. Also I did an upgrade of the Bios from 703 to
    1009 and noticed the SB to NB settings changed from 1000Mhz to 5X?

    Ideally you would think ASUS would have such a document.

    Or better yet, look at this sticky thread for recommendations on the
    BIOS settings on this family of boards.
    These recommendations have been there for a long while, but they've
    been edited and updated as the board's matured.

    Primary Graphics Adapter = selecting wich card gonna be primary
    (when using two or more, you can still use pci, but rather dumb thing to do ;-)

    SB to NB settings changed from 1000Mhz to 5X = the same! 5x HTT is 1000...
