if you plan to OC i would suggest atleast the DFI LanParty UT nF4 Ultra-D, thats what im going to get. you can get a Tagan 480W for around 80 USD(supposed to be one of the best, and is supposed to work with the lanparty well- correct me if im wrong). And you might want to sonsider the OCZ 3200 VX series ~ about 160 USD on newegg for 1gb(2x512)

Well you told us in your first post it was an Ultra-9 and then in your link you said F-9.
Edit;give us the wrong info and we'll give you the wrong answers.
Anyway,you only need the drivers that pertain to your OS.It's such a new board though that I doubt it's worth doing yet.
