The most current BIOS is v 1009, although there's a subsequent Beta version for v 1011.001

To see the downloads available for that board, go here:  http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Select "Motherboard" for the Product;  "Socket 478" for the Series;  and "P4S800" for the Model.    Then click the Search button -- you'll get a prompt for which OS you're using ... and then you'll see all of the available downloads.

For the motherboard usually there is an update of some sort.
Its loaded from windows and not a BIOS update.

The BIOS level firmware is generally the lowest level of updates you can do for a motherboard ... so if you flash the BIOS to the latest version that's all you need to do.   In any event, the links I detailed above provide everything that's available for this board.

An example would be for example:

via updates if the mobo has a via chip set.

Another would be for Dells they often have "chipset" updates.

those are the drivers for onboard devices; they have nothing to do with firmware, but they are updates, if there are newer ones available - sorry for the misunderstanding, but i wanted it clear, so that we talk about the same thing.
Anyway, Garycase gave you the way how to access them. Any further questions i can help with?
