    Hey everybody. You may know me from my publication of the Windows XP Optimization Guide both here on TPU and on OCStop.com (you can expect revisions and updates on that one soon :))

    Today I have finished writing and have published my first of hopefully many hardware reviews, which outlines a dual between the ASRock 775Dual-VSTA and the Asus P5W DH Deluxe. It is located here.

    I'm completely open to constructive criticism and critiquing. Some things I will adjust for future reviews:

    -use 1280x1024 instead of 1280x960
    -narrow down the FarCry benchies
    -expand the number of game titles tested
    -expand memory testing
    -explore other areas of system performance other than gaming, including professional uses.

    Thanks for looking!

    Interesting stuff. I was actually pondering getting one of these Asrock boards and a Core 2 Duo e6400 as an interim upgrade. (see my specs to the left). I would really like a Conroe but my AGP X850 Pro and Corsair TwinX DDR RAM were both purchased in this year and I dont have an endless pit of cash. This would let me get a Conroe, and I can add DDR2 RAM and PCI-E graphics at a later date. Eventually, I would probably get a better specced mobo too.

    Nice review.
    I liked the idea of comparing a high end and low end mobo, tough it's exactly fair you did it well.

    Good job :)
