    Yeah, saw the release details and looks nice. The fact it says fatal1ty on it puts me off.

    Interesting. The fatty AN8 was one of the best 939 boards around and clocked like mad (won a few HEXUS awards too IIRC).
    To be honest, provided it delivers, I dont care about the branding
    Although, I think im picking up a GT now Scan have them.

    No, but I might ditch the P5N-E SLI for it.
    Will wait for the first reviews - I honestly don't expect big performance differences between any of the 650i SLIs (& I see that the MSI is in stock at DABs for £66)

    The red PCB would go nicely with my ATI X1900XT & if I get a nice blue PCB 8800 (BFG?) that would go nicely with my QuadGT & I would get perverse pleasure out of running the ATI on nVidia chipset & the nVidia on Crossfire chipset.

    P5N-E SLI no good then, or is it just a sex thing?

    I see that Manchester must be close to Wales

    No, the P5N-E SLI is OK.
    Few things though:
    soldered BIOS so a bad flash etc.= new board rather than replace a chip
    only 6 mobo mounting holes & cutdown PCB = DIMM slots, ATX connector, IDE connectors etc. are all on a bit of PCB that flexes nicely when you push down ...
    2 months later & they still haven't got a better BIOS than the shipping 1 which is slightly buggy.
    Asus=Vdroop
    No hs on sb or PWM

    On the other hand it does have firewire which the abit looks to have dropped (I don't use it but some do)

    & yes, I like abit boards (not so keen on fatal1ty though so hopefully they make a plain IN9 SLI).

    oooh, only £85!! Things are looking good for the ultra edition (without SLI) being reasonably priced then

    I'd be very interested in one of these too as long as it clocks as well as the Asus P5N-E SLI.

    As Agent said the AN8 was a cracking board so it would be nice to go back to Abit again. Asus with their crappy bios and v-droop are really begining to hack me off.
