    Hey Boy Go for a GIGABYTE GA-K8NSNXP or MSI K8N Neo Platinum and leave ASUS as it is very buggy. its bios is very bad and audio drivers won't install.

    Hi Kashek85
    Asus K8NE deluxe is no longer buggy. Today itself I have installed my friend's system havung this board.WinXP sp1 installed without a hitch.Ditto for drivers including leadtech-GForse FX5700 vidio card. I also upadted the bios to the latest release version , that is 1005.
    The only thing which annoyed was 'WDM drivers for vidio capture' which would not install for love or money.The drivers are supposed to be on the graphics card CD but they aren't there.So it is no faullt of asus.

    MSI and gigabyte boards of the same genre have been acclaimed as top class bords also, but the rpoblem in INDIA is lack of support for the above mentioned brands.But for price- performance combination MSI is still the best if you can get it in INDIA.

    Hope thsi info is useful. You can also research a bit on the web to make your own judgement.

    Hey if u wanna overclock ur CPU(certainly after the warranty pd. expiresie 3 yrs) then go for MSI K8N NEO PLATINUM. Its BIOS is very friendly and when coupled with good ram sticks u can over clock 2800+ from 1.8GHz to 2.2 Ghz!!!

    What more check out its reviews along with the reviews of asus one and decide urself.

    no offence .. but asus boards are great to overclock too
    infact they are extremely stable ...
    it comes with software for automatic overclockin as well
    but ofcourse thats on select models
    again ... only personal choice ..
    in the end its upto u
    ive been using asus boards for the past 8 yrs. .. no problems ... EVER

    ASUS and MSI are both top brands you can choose any without the fear of losing.

    hey firstly if ur going for a 2800+,i think a good economic mobo like the ASUS K8V shud suffice.good features but dusnt overclock that well.on the other hand if u wanna go for the other mobos,although being a ASUS lover and fanboy,id suggest the K8NNeo.

    also id suggest that u wait for the Nforce4 and buy a socket 939 processor because the 754's might be phased out by the end of next year.

    Any mobo from MSI or ASUS sporting the nForce3 or nForce4 will give you great performance.
