hello,
I'm planning to buy a new PC and now I'm confused selecting Motherboard.
I have two choices MSI K8N Diamond Plus and ASUS A8N SLI Premium.
please help me selecting the motherboard.
I've heard that that a WiFi card is bundled with the MSI K8N Diamond Plus. Is it true.

side note this is my first MSI board since i was a DFI fan boy before, i love both and would build again with either motherboard.

never used a asus motherboard so im impartial.

A £10 Wi-Fi card isn't a good reason to buy a board.

That is a extra gear.
Why do you think it worth 10 pounds.

I bought a car and pay for it 18000E.
I crash a little part on front of it but engine is fine and i must pay for repair 20% down of hole price for repair...

Try you to buy a whole board in pieces, you will probably must have to sold all your house for it :lol:

I'm not really understanding what you're saying because it doesn't really make sense. However, I'm going to elaborate:

If you have two boards for £70 and one has a Wi-Fi card but isn't as good, you get the better board. You're shopping for a motherboard, not a Wi-Fi card, and seeing as Wi-Fi is such a cheap addition to a system there's absolutely no point in buying a worse board just because it has a Wi-Fi card included.

ASrock has pci-E and agp slot and he kick even dfi with Ali(Uli).

That what you said is truth sometimes.

But to him it probably doesent mather sience he probably dont meant to do any overclock.

The good thing is he dont must think on WiFi card.

Now day one board is better from another only in overclocking matter.

MSI Definately. Read the Newegg reviews on the Asus SLI boards and you will know why. Asus has really gone downhill the last 2 years.

I have a ASUS mobo. No problem at all.
Probably both are OK.

I'm just asking which one is better ASUS A8N SLI Premium or MSI K8N Deluxe.
One of my friend has A8N SLI Premium. he has no problem with the mobo.
I don't know which one is better that's why I asked U?
Asus mobo has a built-in Firewire and some useful feature's such as AI Net, but I don't know about MSI features.
Anyone who has experience of using both of these mobos please specify me. If I didn't get any useful suggestion I'll go for ASUS

One nice feature of MSI mobos is that it is easy to update the BIOS and drivers for the onboard hardware using a MSI program called MSI Live Monitor. Also found MSI web site support is good. Have 3 MSI mobo and one Asus, overall I'd go with MSI

Okay, and I'm saying (having little experience with one board and none with the other) that being tempted to get a worse board because of a WLAN card is dumb. The late Asus mobos don't have a great reputation.
