    i currently have an Asus A8V Deluxe and Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester @ 2.4ghz and as a few of you read a few days ago i think it died http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=21759
    still have no idea what happened and havent heard back from ASUS...

    but anyway i have had 2 Asus mobo's and loved them both (A8V Deluxe & A7N8X Deluxe) so im kinda partial to them. i would like to stay with the 939 so i dont have to replace my CPU right now. im leaning more towards PCI express though cause i havent seen anything saying that directx 10 will be available for AGP so i would need a new ATI card as well. unless i am wrong then i will stay with AGP. So what do you guys think i should go with? i play battlefield 2 and Counter strike source alot so i need gaming performance... thanks in advance.....Acoustic :roll:

    instead of emailing ASUS trying calling them on the phone...its 20X faster than emailing,and you will probably get a rma number the same day...if you want a new asus board for 939 get the A8N32-SLI Deluxe:toast:

    that just plain sux 1 ide what good is that as a lot of peopel still use ide for hdd's and cd/dvd drives, im sure putting 1 more on there wouldnt break the bank and you can also get boards with 2 ide's that have upto 8 sata's for quite a wide choice of connectivity options
