Default Vista and MSI K8N Neo 2 Motherboard

I am looking at doing dual boot XP / Vista this week end. However i was just on my motherboard's (MSI Neo2 Platium), and I have noticed that the only driver Vista Driver 32 Bit that is on any of MSI's website is the Realtek Gigabit Ethernet Drivers.

All the other drivers are 2k/Xp and XP 64-Bit, and the occasional 98Se.

Does any one know if Vista all ready has default drivers for the following
  • AMD Cool and Quiet Driver
  • NVIDIA nForce3 System Drivers
  • Realtek ALC Series AC'97 Audio Drivers for MSI nForce 3 Series board
  • Nvidia nForce3 SATA/RAID driver for Windows 2K/XP
Or should I wait for Vista drivers for the above? Or should I vist the chipset manufacturer's websites for these drivers.

I currently do not have RAID on my sister, so I am not fussed about that last one.

Have any one here used a MSI Neo2 Platium MoBo with Vista yet? Or should I just stick another hard drive is and find out for myself first?

Have you downloaded the Microsoft Vista ready tester? It will give you an idea of how it will work on your pc.
