I had to replace the BIOS chip on my ABIT NF-7. How do I determine the correct orientation? Or does it really matter?

There's usually a nick at one end and this is the end (99%) that pin 1 is located at.

Not really in tune with your Q - But I think this site may interest you, wandered across it and wished my mobo had an enthusiast like this:

Info on rom chip price etc

the nick at the corner may also be a [white] dot or a 1...  There might also be some drawings right underneath the chip seat thingy that can direct you.
I don't suppose you can make a record of the current orientation b4 removing (put your own dot on it if needs be).
