Yeah I'm pretty excited about that. Is there an estimated release date yet? Like Spring time maybe? hehe

I had no driver support for my Wireless adapter for Vista 64bit also though...

After a few hours of research though, I found a guide on how a bunch of people got around that problem by installing a different program and drivers. Just annoying that Linksys STILL didn't release 64 bit drivers, while they had 32 bit...

The EP43 mobo that was recommended is out of stock and I'll be purchasing the components soon.
Would this board be fine? GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L

just making sure. ^^
