Default Does this board need a bios flash?

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Does this board need a bios flash to support a 45nm c2d?
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Wolfdale 2.53GHz 3MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

??

Thanks guyz :P

And if it does need a bios flash can someone support a cheap but good board that doesnt? probably a p45 or a p43?


Oh, and will this PSU Newegg.com - Antec earthwatts EA430 430W ATX12V v2.0 Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, FCC, TUV, CE, CB, C-tick, CCC - Power Supplies

Be able to support a e7200 + a (lets just say) a 4850/4870/8800gts 512?

And if not, will this one support it?
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power RP-550-PCAR 550W ATX from factor 12V V2.01 Power Supply 110-115V/ 220-230V Nemko, TUV, cUL, CE, BSM, FCC, CCC - Power Supplies

Nope all P35 boards support Wolfdales and Quad's Natively (same with Yorkys)

As for the PSU, not sure.. 17 amps on 3 rails is ok.. but you can't combine rail amperage because of inefficiency......

I'd say its enough.. but pushing it.. try to get a Rosewill RP550-2 or an Antec TPT 650w (its like $60 on the egg)
