    The Asus A8N-E Deluxe is by far my favorite non-SLI board. Have not tested the Abit. The MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum I tested sucked. I'm waiting for the RMA so I can do more testing. Let us know how the AN8 works our?

    Well I've never had any trouble with an Abit board so cant imagine any trouble, it is the cheapest of the boards but for now it'll do me, only seems to be missing firewire and the OTES stuff neither of which bother me tbh....

    You may find that your Guru clock still works on the AN8-V (don't know if -V still has uGuru chip or if that goes too to cut price)

    & I suggest not touching BIOS15 ...

    The only s939 board I have used is the DFI NF4 Ultra-D and love it (although going down to a shuttle )

    I have heard good things however about the nForce4 ABIT boards I do like ABIT boards as they have done me grand in the past

    Well I've had bad luck with Abit historically, but I have not used the S939 Abit boards. I've heard good things about them mostly. Seems like I have not heard much in the way of negative feedback about them so they are probably good. I think they cleaned up their act after their S754 board was such a mess. You got to love a company that has the balls to call a motherboard "Fatal1ty"! Sorta like calling a hard drive "Datakiller 9000" or something.
