Default Asus P5k Deluxe/wifi-ap

ASUS P5K DELUXE/WIFI-AP is openbox 140

ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP 150 new

is the deluxe worth the risk of it being bad? bear in mind, i can get a refund from newegg, so its just a matter of waiting for the shipping.

I had two p5k Deluxe/wifi-ap boards and they both were junk. Had to return them both, then went with a gigabyte board.

up to you

is there a better board for around 150 that has 2 pcie 16 slots and hopefully 3 pci?

actually, Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3P LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Dynamic Energy Saver Ultra Durable II Intel Motherboard - Retail looks really good. It only has two pci, but i can live with that i think

any other thoughts on either board? spec wise the diff is that the pk5e has built in wifi and an extra pci slot ( a big plus to me). But that isnt worth it if the board itself isnt as high quality.

two 3850s out perfomr one 8800gt, and the 7600gs wont contribute to gamign anyway so that way ul have multi monitors and higher fps in games.
