Hello Pierre,

I also have this board and a NVIDIA 7600GT PCI-E card.

I tested the latest revision a few days ago. Unfortunately there was 
still no output on the screen after a power-off. So it is no real 
alternative/replacement for the legacy bios of the board yet.

But console output works.

Best regards,

 >>Is this still valid and would it mean I wont have any display output?
