4.38's I found to be good on my older Via PIII board. Going to the new Hyperion's stuffed it up quite a bit so I don't bother stuffing around with the new drivers now that my setup is stable. The earlier revisions (pre 4.35's) were trouble too.
Something that I liked about the site was the updates of news (including bios updates, drivers, general tidbits of tech info). I didn't mind the OT stuff but that wasn't what I specifically was looking for when I came to Icrontic.

Yeah there are plenty of options. Some mobos come with 4 SATA connectors so you could hook up 4 HDD's to them (can only hook 1 device to each connector in SATA but as Trekky said, you'll also have the standard 2 IDE connectors as well for 4 more dev…
If you ever have problems with the latest nVidia drivers, a lot of people like the 30.82's to fall back on. So far the only game I've had any problems with is NWN:SoU but it looks pretty likely that it is a glitch introduced by a patch.
Yeap I'm sure. Someone asked a little while ago so I looked it up.
0.8V -> AGP 8x
1.5V -> AGP 4x
Not sure about the rest but one of them is 3.3V... just can't remember how it goes.
And with the transistor counts of vid cards nowadays I would …

Mobo faqs. Lots of them. It looks like Sudhian Media doesn't actively maintain Paul's old faqs all that much from when I last checked (just the odd bios mod update here or there), so I'd be keen on seeing something a little more active in that area.
I ran a 3DMark2001 test run with the executive paging tweak and the scores/framerates etc were practically identical. Thinking about it, I wouldn't expect it to benefit 3DMark. I'll run some Sandra benchies later :)
I run more hardware than that at and at peak it takes about 220-240W (via power consumption readings from my UPS). AMD recommends a min 300W PSU too.
But I agree that the quality of the PSU is a big factor.
