for overall performance (will use c2d with stock speed & moderate oc.) which one is the best, asus p5b deluxe/wifi-ap or asus p5w dh deluxe?

i noticed that the 965 chipset has more features than the 975x one. correct me if i'm wrong.

Both will do for moderate OCs, but the 975X is better for Crossfire and the P965 for higher OCs.

thanks for the reply. :) 

i like the features it has in asus p5wdh, the digital home thing, i also like the feature it lays in the 965 chipset.

argh, now i have a mount to climb: asus p5w dh deluxe, asus p5b deluxe/wifi-ap, abit aw9d-max, foxconn 975x7ab-8ekrs2h (damn those foxconn makes the model name too long to remember).

If you get a GF 8800 GTX, I don't think you will have a need for SLI anyway. (for a LONG time)
Just get a good PSU and be happy with the P965. Unless you KNOW you need SLI.
I personally like the Deluxe WiFi, but it has 802.11g. I'll just get the plain Mobo then get a 802.11n card later.

is 802.11n standard yet?
October 31, 2006 1:32:51 AM

I have not read anyplace that 802.11n is a standard. Still a draft. I did read that it works well reguardless.
Maybe Asus will have a Deluxe Wifi with 802.11n by the time I am ready to buy one.

is the 802.11n a 300mbps one?
like the one which will be used with the core 2 duo santa rosa in future notebook?

cool! if there's official statement on when this wireless adapter be included in the near future with the newer asus board, than it's worth the waiting.

11mbps sucks. 54mbps kind of cool. but 300mbps? give it a wing and it will fly :p

From what I know, the only thing keeping a 802.11n draft card from being a full 802.11b standard card is the firmware.
This means the hardware will not change.
Just flash the firmeare when a newer or final version is ready.
