Unhappy Vista x64

Ok, so i have a question regarding windows vista 64 bit edition. Basically I want to know if the drivers are all going to be available for me to run it on my current system.I have a ECS NFORCE4M-A Motherboard, I know its a very cheap board but im on a extremely tight budget. Everything else i know will be fine with it, im mainly worried about the sound and network drivers. Also if it won't work plz suggest a different motherboard that will have all the drivers available or possibly i could just get a new sound card and a seperate lan card. Remember im on a very tight budget though!

Well to be honest...I want a completely 64bit vista compatible motherboard, and i'd like a different motherboard really. So honestly i'd like suggestions on motherboards that are compatible but not to expensive. If anyone knows if my current motherboard is compatible though let me know, because i will just bare with it for awhile untill i can get a new one in that case. Also remember..not just vista compatiblie vista 64 bit compatible.

I have vista 64. I use my comp for music production and other things but its a PITA just to get things to work on it since everyone has it or doesnt have support for it. I'm going back to x86 but thats just me since I do use different programs for music production. Half the time I can't even install my programs.
