I know the basics also. But i'm confused on which download to get.

http://usa.asus.com/support/download/item.aspx?ModelName=A7N8X

that is the motherboard I hav.. but the desc says.
A7N8X BIOS 1010 for PCB revision 2.0 and later only.

and the other
A7N8X BIOS 1007 for PCB revision 1.03, 1.04, and 1.06 only.

question is, how do I know the PCB revision number? And when i ran Dxdiag it said the motherboards name is A7N8X2.0. So i'm guessing it is 2.0, but i would like to make sure.

Usually they print it on the motherboard somewhere. Not sure where Asus puts it.

This is more or less the same mobo I have. I believe the revision number from dxdiag is good but the one I go by is the number I see when the machine is coming up. Watch the results you get as the BIOS is doing its tests. It will say the board number and the current BIOS revision near the top of your screen.
