    hi,

    i am upgrading my comp and have zeroed in on the following 2 mobos for my athlon 64 3000+ socket 939 based rig :

    (i) Asus A8N-SLI (Nforce4 SLI) Price Rs. 16000
    (ii) A8V-E Deluxe (Via K8T890) Price Rs. 12500

    Please suggest which board should I go in for. The only plus points that i see in the nforce4 board is the support for sata 2 and a hardware based firewall. I am not very much into gaming but the overall performance of the system is important to me. Which one is a better performer and is more future proof.

    Thanx a tonne

    Unless ur a gaming freak there is no point in goin in for the SLI mobos. SLI's enable you to use the PCI-E technology to use two graphics cards at once to boost ur gaming performance. The performance wise it really doesnt tell the diff. However the noforce4 chipset is supposed to be better the VIA chipset esp in the onboard video dept. So choose a mobo without SLI but with nforce4 chipset.

    I am getting my Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe tomorrow. Initially will mount only single card & then add second card after some months.

    ALL This game is of $Money$.
    A8N does not offer any significant performance rise untill u use 2 GFX cards. SIngle 6800GT costs 22K~25K depending upon brand. I got myself a A8N SLI with Athlon 64 3500+ and 6800Ultra at 30K. whenever the need b I "ll get another PCI-E card. A8n SLI cost me 13K while A8V costs 12K. the difference is GFX cards cost which "ll appear when U buy the mobo

    Any idea abt the launch of Asus A8N-E Premium (Nforce4 Ultra, Non SLI). What abt the pricing. I hear that asus is bundling a PCI-E card with its flagship mobos based on 925X and also A8N-SLI. What is the truth in the statement? What is the bundled price of the combo

    I don't think A8N-E premium wud b available in India and even if it wud there won't b any major price difference. One thing is 2 b noted down that nForce 4 SLI is much more future proof atleast in 3D/gaming.

    But the choice is urs. I hope there wud b a difference of not more than 2K~3K.

    off to "never ever" land
    hmmm i had to butt in :)
    ok we cant ASK digit to carry on the test
    it'll happen when they decide to review mobos
    besides those mobos will make it only if they are worthy ( and since its asus im sure they'll make it :D )

    now the main reason i came here
    @fanatic welcom to the forums
    enjoy ur stay here
    but u already posted in here http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11557
    abt ur sli board :p now stop repeating
    id suggest u read the forum rules here
    http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6775

    specially bats dos and donts here
    http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10628

    besides SLI is not the only option now
    tho the nforce4 chipset kicks ass
    but still no support for ddr2
    anyways as for the answer of sli .. ati has 3D1
    search for more details i forgot the link

    :D enjoy
