Intel D975XBX2 Mobo and Win 7 32 Bit Ultimate

Hi all, I have had this Mobo for just 2 years and feel very let down that Intel are not supporting it fully under Windows 7 as 2 years ago it was a top end Mobo. My questions are, 1. Will the latest version of Intel Matrix Raid run on this Board under Win7 Raid 0. 2. As there are no Drivers for the 975 chipset ini files, Intel pro/ 1000 /PL Lan, and IDT Audio driver, and according to Intel there are no plans to supply these drivers under, Win -7, does anybody Know if the latest drivers that were released for Win Vista Ultimate 32 bit will work with Win 7 on this Board so that I can set about building my new system. Or is it a case of new OS Win 7, = new Mobo and processor,and yet even more Intel rip off?

Thanks to someone

Hi - Perhaps you've solved problem by now. Thought I'd checkout your problem because your mobo is quite new. I also have Windows 7 graphics compatibility problem with my Dell PC that's 2 years older than yours. Have been onto Intel site and it seems your mobo is Crossfire compatible so you can fit a graphics card that will cope with Windows 7 requirements. In fact, if you're interested I have a surplus EAH4350 card that I can't use!
