The manual is for the board as it leaves the factory,in the meantime faster cpus etc are brought our which means the motherboard manufacturer has to rewrite the bios to enable compatabilty. Just read the bios notes to see what it is being upgraded for.
ive just got this board and basically probably not, unless they bring out a faster 266fsb processor and the chipset probably only supports 512mbit chips at a maximum thus leaving you with a gig of ram as maximum
"... im glad to know that a bios update would allow the use of components ...."
That's not quite the situation - there might be a BIOS update for this one day - and then there might not be. A lot depends on the original board design, and whether the manufacturer wants to do such an update.
