    Socket AM2, coupled with the introduction of new chipsets to go with it, give manufacturers of AMD-based mainboards an opportunity to poke a new wave of enthusiast products on to the market. AMD is no doubt counting on its partners producing some killer boards that'll help it hold on to its market share. Enter two new enthusiast boards from ASUS, the CROSSHAIR and M2N32-SLI Deluxe, that just might be a pair of such killer boards.

    There's something about them I don't like. Maybe the mixture of colours on top of the sexeh black PCB. (I reckon all black with black slots lit with white LEDs would be cool).

    I know this sounds silly but I would prefer the full 8 SATA2 connectors with all the features on the inside, then maybe an extra external one. In a short time I presume that we will have loads of SATA DVD/HD-DVD/BD-DVD etc drives coming to the market.

    I also think that 3 internal USB headers (for 6 ports) is a must, because of the number of front bay devices on top of the number of cases with four front panel ports.
