    Mobo help, plus have you made a mistake on your website?

    Right, after thinking long and hard I'm going to place my order with Scan. Although I completely hate those idiots sh*ty link that you insist on using for delivery. But from what i hear, you after sales service is very good. If i have another nightmare with sh*tylink i will be screaming blue murder! But i am sure you chaps will sort any problems out well from what i hear

    Right, I know what CPU, etc, i am getting, but unsure about the motherboard. I am looking at these two;

    Abit AN8 NForce4, ATX, DDDR400, PCI-E, Gbit Lan, USB 2.0, 1394, 5.1ch Audio, 4 x SATA, Raid -

    Abit AN8 Ultra PCI-E S939 NF4 DDR400 SATA RAID Gbit Lan 1394 USB2 7.1Ch Audio -

    Are you sure they are both AN8's? Is the first one not a KN8?

    And can you please tell me which is the best of the two boards and why. The second one is cheaper, but acually seems better on paper.

    There both AN8 boards however the only difference seems to be the audio on each of the boards.

    The second board has slightly better features therefore I would say out of the two go for the ultra version.

    The difference in price reflects the cost price to ourselves I would imagine as soon as we get a new shipment of the AN8 boards the price on the first board will be reduced slightly.

    The Ultra is the better buy at those prices as apart from the 7.1 rather than 5.1 audio you also gain the Secure Network engine in the nF4 Ultra chipset & 3.55V Vdimm.

    That is the 1st version of the AN8 shown & only has 2.8Vdimm, the Ultra & the AN8 V2.0 have 3.55Vdimm & the same passive heatpipe cooler for the chipset .
