Default BIOS on new egg

Where does new egg tell you what BIOS a motherboard come with? It's really important, because OCZ RAM has problems if you don't have the right BIOS on several brands.

If it's the wrong bios just flash it to the latest one.

Well that dosn't help if new egg is selling an older motherboard that dosn't have the right BIOS, the new ones are recent, so theres a chance that all the motherboards have been reaplaced.
