The best bios is whatever works for you. There aren't any performance differences.

 

I hope that you're not trying to use that AGP card with the SLI-D

 

Look through the OCDB to get a start with figuring out the best timings for your memory.

Just do a search for your memory in socket 939.

 

Oh, where are my manors...

 

Welcome to DFI-street. Hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to look through the links in my sig, primarily the DFI overclocking guide and initial build. They're very helpful and extremely self explanatory.

Welcome to the "Street"!

 

As stated by Crazy Nate, the best BIOS is the one that works for your requirements. If you want to flash it, however, here is a link to Tmod's CD:

Read the thread for more information.

 

I would use the guide to burn it with "CDBurnerXP Pro". It is free and works great.

 

As for good memory timings, I suggest that you visit OCZ's Tech website here:

I hope this helps. It is the best feeling when you complete the build and it actually works.

 

Good luck!
