Take a look on Asus' site for the latest drivers. Their site is pretty friendly.Since you're using Vista, it should automatically find drivers that support your network adapters... So hopefully you can do all the downloading/updating on the new rig. I personally download onto my laptop and than transfer to the new rig via USB, diskette or CD/DVD. I also prefer flashing the Bios with a clean windows install, followed by chipset drivers and then graphics drivers. I then backup the system before installing any software --besides drivers.Asus Downloads

I might also add be cautious of the drivers Vista 64 automatically installs. Normally they are older versions. Located the latest chipset, network, sound, etc and try to use those. I had issues with my MB NIC dropping the connection until I updated the NIC drivers with the latest 64 bit version.
