If you've got anything recent as far as Socket A goes, you're not going to see much to tempt you to the -E Deluxe, unless WiFi is your thing. Enthusiasts will either stick with what they've got, or get the DFI (or possibly AN7 if they are dyed in the wool ABIT fans).

To newcomers to the platform, and hello to all you stragglers, it's a decent choice due to price. But make sure the feature set is what you want, consider other options too.

Like their recent FX 5950 Ultra graphics card, it's underwhelming. The window of opportunity to make A7N8X-E great was missed by a mile, maybe ASUS were asleep. You can tell their focus is elsewhere, is that maybe a sign that yours should be too?
