Hi, is the A7N8x-x or -d better, the only thing i can see better on the -x is the better sound system. Is this correct? And i know its got a faster north and south bridge.

Well having just bought and installed one - been struggling with this since Wednesday morning - I honestly can't say I find any difference between the speeds of this board and my Asus A7V266E.

I did attempt to install the onboard sound which seemed to attract umpteen other additions - about seven in all - (Microsoft streaming, and goodness knows what else) which prompted a Windows protection error. - This was with a new Asus Graphics card - which could have contributed to my problems.

Others might be able to advise you better.

If you are looking for the "Best" A7N8X board then pend a little extra and go for the Deluxe "Gold" version. (Make sure its Rev.2.0).

It has all the bells and whistles that you can imagine and highly regarded.

As to the others boards, I am afraid I cant help!

I can get an a7n8x-d Rev 2.0 from my local supplier CCL for 95.

Is that the gold version for the link? How much is delivery from Komplett, whats the difference between gold and normal deluxe?

This has a slighlty better tweaking option in BIOS and more stabilty.

Ref the Asus AGP Card, they can be a pain at times its not a MB Problem. Also out of the Box if buying a A7V8X-X the board can support a 2.2GHZ straight away and the Bios update software is excelllent to get the BIOS to support CPU's up to 3GHz. I actually did this with hassle free sucess.

If you don't need Seriel ATA then the Deluxe is pointless.

A7V8XM is with onboard VGA.

Alternate is MSI KT4 Ultra.

Is the link smiffy gave for the gold version of Komplett. click here
The A7N8X is better and the -d even better still.

I thought the only extras on the gold is a couple of programs?

I dont want onboard VGA.

I may use serial ata later, as may i need to network ports.
