I love ASUS as a Intel Board. P4P800-E Deluxe is the best s478 board there is... But, AMD... no way. Go with DFI... You can lose.

The A8N32's layout sucks.... Not enough PCI slots available and they are cramed between the two SLI PCI Express slots. Good Luck trying to fit a Sound card in there.

the MSI is an excellent board, good price for the money, though its like 160 dollars, spend like 40 dollars more and get teh DFI NF4 SLI-DR which is a great oCing board and very stable

Amazine how many people don't know that. The DFI LAnparty NF4 SLI blows away Asus in performance and tweaking ability. Not to mention it's just plain cool looking in a fluoresced case!

no go with the MSI or gigabyte SLI if you are NOT OCing sense the extra money would be kind of pointless unless you have a lot of moeny then go with the DFi
