    Abit or Asus again...

    I'm ordering the last two components of my new rig from Scan today (CPU and motherboard) but I'm faced with a last minute question: which motherboard do I get?

    As I purchased the GTO² () a couple of weeks ago, I have no need for SLi and so have turned to standard NF4 boards. Two catch my eye:

    The Abit AN8 Ultra and the Asus A8N-E.

    I'm drawn towards the Abit because of extra features but does anyone have any experience with either of these boards?

    You could go for SLI because i think its teh gto2 after flashing is compatible with teh x850 master card? I'd go for the Abit as ive had no problems with my nf7-s, and havent had any experience with asus motherboards.

    SLi is a nvidia technology, not ATi.

    I wasn't aware you could use Nvidia's SLi with ATi cards??

    [EDIT: Haha, you beat me to it!]
