    Hello All!

    I have an Alienware with the EVGA 790i motherboard that has given up the ghost. I can't find a good Alienware replacement board, but have found several EVGA 790i boards with the same part number.

    If I replace it with that one, I would need the Alienware BIOS files to reflash it, but I can't seem to find those either.

    Might there be some kind soul here who has a copy of the latest Alienware BIOS files for that board?

    Thanks for any help or advice!

    Hi - The EVGA BIOS will indeed work, but Alienware brands the BIOS and the various Alienware apps won't work unless it sees that Alienware BIOS. Not really dealbreakers, but the Monitoring and Alienware Themes, etc, would be nice to keep if I can find the OEM Alienware BIOS files.

    Thanks ever so much for the reply and bird-dog to the EVGA site.
