The A8N32-SLI Deluxe supports dual PCI Express x16 slots running at full speed to liberate graphics cards from the narrow bandwidth platform of x8 speed only. It not only inherited AI Life series features, such as Stack Cool 2 and SATA on the Go, but also some new innovations, including 8-Phase Power Design and Fanless Design. With ASUS' innovative designs to bring out the real potential of NVIDIA nForceĀ™4 SLI X16 chipsets, gamers can easily enjoy faster graphics performance and higher video quality today, and be ready for the even more demanding tasks of tomorrow!



Seems to be a rip off board for $231.58.
