    intel is standard ... vanila no extra features .. not overclockable
    asus gives extra features ... is overclockable and extremely stable
    if u got cash and want to overclock .. asus is ur choice

    features =
    1) extra usb 2.0 ports
    2) maybe firewire ports
    3) wifi bundle ( on specific models)
    4) gigabit (1000mbps) lan
    5) onboard graphics
    6) 6 channel onboard sound
    etc etc.
    these features depend on the model u buy
    plus its overclockable like i mentioned ...
    so dude if u dun have much knowledge and these thigns dont make a difference just go for intel ...
    it'll be 1-1.5k cheaper too between these 2 mobos ..

    both the mobos have 8 usb 2.0 ports
    none have firewire ports
    what is a wifi bundle
    865GBF also has gigabit lan but no use in mumbai hence going for 10/100 lan
    both have the same 865 chipset hence the same onboard sound card and graphics card

    but since i am not going to overclock and cheaper, i will go for intel

    what say?

    hey i too have the asus board there is NO OVERCLOCKING here. Wonder how you come up with such amazing tips. Also no gigabit lan plain 10/100 mbps. by the way this is not a good goard to go for today. there are much better options available. i bought this board 18 months ago then it was hot.
