    I am between two mobos. The two are:

    • DFI LP UT nF4 SLI-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI
    • ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI

    This mobo will be paired with a BFG 7900GTX as well as an Athlon X2 3800+.

    Which one? Vote and also post your opinion.

    I'm an Asus fanboy :D. You'll like either board alot, but do you REALLY need SLI support? Just get an NF4 ultra and enjoy all those PCI slots you'll never use anyways :p.

    Acually, yes. I would like to get SLI eventually and get two of those gfx cards.

    There is no contest, I have them both. The DFI kicks the ASUS butt!

    Dfi, 4V for mem,OCs way higher,heatsinks on mobo, there is a hundred reasons why DFI WINS.

    Asus rules for Pentium but soso for amd (except for the A8N32,very good)

    This may sound dumb but check out the Jetway 939GT4 (best mobo under $122 period)
    It has 3 PCIX16 slots,middle one for 1 videocard. Than when you go SLI u use the 2 outer ones,no jumpers no switches just plug and go.

    Thats not fair, there is no MSI here! only DFI and Asus..lol

    Actually the neo4 plat. is a great board too for 1 video card and the Diamond for SLI.
