After recent Socket A LanParty excursions, Tarinder took a look at the Springdale version of things. So how long before we see a Socket 754 LanParty?

The LANPARTY 865PE is a good board, there's little doubt of that. Is being good enough to warrant a purchase ?. The inherent trouble is that there are many good boards available. Here's another problem we foresee. You can buy an ASUS or MSI board at almost any PC e-tailer. DFI boards are harder to come by. DFI probably set the standard with its LANPARTY range. Now it needs to raise the bar again and make users sit up and take real notice again. Another decent board to add to the horde of decent DFI boards currently available. Good but not great.
