Yes, the Aug. '05 and May '05 (and any other shipment labeled 7.1 for that matter) will all be identical.
I don't think any CD's were shipped as the 7.1.1 update, so you
shouldn't have to worry about that. Even though you'd be able to open
7.1.1 VIs in 7.1.
Yes, the splash screen does display the entire version as shown below.

I don't think NI has ever shipped a minor dot update on CD unless it's
the patch in a separate directoy that must be installed separately.
So overall, you should be fine with the CDs you currently have,
