Hello,
I am seriously looking at the Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard, which uses the nvidia 650i sli chipset. Has anyone had any experience with this board? I am planning to use my pentium d 805 proc with it, as well as a 2x1gb ddr-800 set for memory. Looking at the specs, I like the gigabit nic, sli setup, an e-sata connectorsss, and what appears to be some pretty useful overclocking abilities. - all for about $140.00....

If you have an opinion, good or bad, what are your thoughts? How does this compare to an Intel P965 chipset? Is there something better? I really can't afford a 680i chipset, because if I could, it would be in my case.....

By the way, I am planning to use two 7600gt cards in sli mode.

Thanks - Bigolac

That's a good quality board. LOTS of systems out there with it.

The P965 doesn't support SLI. With Intel, it's recommended that you stick with Intel chipsets, but you have to go the 975x, and OUCH, it's pricey. HIGH quality, but you pay for it.

You might reconsider SLI--the 8800GTX is matching and even beating many SLI setups. Plus it's already DX10 compatible--that day is just around the corner...

Either way you go, I seriously doubt you'd be sorry you bought this board.
