  1. Asus A8N32-SLI for sure. Hands down the fastest 939 board on the market.

  2. A) You're missing the DFI LanParty SLI-DR Expert

    B) You haven't told us what you're going to do with it, so that's limiting our scope.

    C) Going with Asus, for now....
  3. I'm not able to get a hold of the expert. Opteron 165...OCZ plat 2 gig dual channel 2-3-2-5, eVGA 7800GT prob use stepup when 7900GT is available 250gig 16mb buffer WD caviar sata-II
  4. What about a X1900XT...you could save a few bucks on the board to make up price diff and mate it with a AT8-MVP for around $100...
    I think that makes a nice PC myself...

    Here is my rig....
    Lian Li PC-60plus Black Aluminum Case (w/TR-3B Black Thermometer/Fan Controller 3.5” bay)
    Opteron 175 (2x 2.2 GHz, 2MB cache, Socket 939, .09 micron, E6 stepping, OSA175DAA6CD)
    ThermalTake BigWaterSE 12cm liquid cooling system complete kit
    Asus A8R-MVP Motherboard (ATI Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire, socket 939, SATA2)
    HiS X1800XT Graphics Card (625 MHz/700 MHz OC core/1500 Mhz/1600 MHz OC mem, Dual DL-DVI VIVO 512 MB PCIe)
    ATI TV Theater 550 PRO Tuner (PCI TV and FM Tuner)
    2x 512MB Corsair Micro Xpert DDR RAM (2-2-2-6-2T (spd 2-2-2-5-1T) TwinXP 1024-3200XL)

    Logitech Cordless Optical TrackMan
    Case Fans (SilenX 120mm intake, Adda 120mm exhaust blower, SilenX 92mm exhaust and SilenX 80mm Fan)
    It gets 4,578 marks in 3DMark06 and 9,652 marks in 3DMark05.
  5. It is a nice keyboard, ain't it? :tongue:
  6. awright, I suppose...
  7. I just got this Fraps thingy, it's supposed to benchmark your FPS will gaming 8O Looks good so far.
  8. By the looks of it, the fans favour the A8N32-SLI :)
    I think I'm gonna get that.
    Does anyone know when the Asus A8N32-SLI PREMIUM will be out? And what kind of changes it will come with? If so, is it worth waiting for the Premium?
  9. I doubt that they'll put out a "premium" board for the A8N32. The only purpose of the original premium was to fix the problems that existed on the deluxe model (failing chipset fan, weak overclock, etc.). There aren't any major complaints about the A8N32-SLI, so I doubt they'll do any thing with it, at least, not till socket AM2 gets released, in which case, it won't matter anyways.
  10. Oh awesome...looks like it's the A8N32!!!!
