Default ASUS Crosshair III Formula

So I recently upgraded my PC. Since I like to stick with AMD (I Know, I know), I went with the ASUS Crosshair III and AMD 965 3.4GHz.

Now, the board is great, it's stable, and good lord its got a LOT of overclocking features.

Problem is - their website barely works, so I spend more time downloading drivers then anything. The "LCD Poster" thing doesn't even light up or come remotely close to working even with it disabled in BIOS, the software CD doesn't support Windows Vista 7 x64 (I had to put support to Windows XP). Almost all the software just crashes.

The soundcard it comes with is a big joke. After owning a Creative X-Fi, this Creative has no software support FROM creative it's all from Asus. Basically, there is no support. I only get like two options, no "gaming" options. And good luck finding the drivers It's a "SupremeFX X-Fi Audio Card "

Anyone else have this board?
