Abit. Hands down, almost all the features of the ASUS and is the "overclocking king" of the NF2 mobo's MAKE SURE YOU GET THE REV 2.0! The rev 1.0 is good but not as stable. Some may say the Epox is a better board, but this is untrue. They say that it can hit 200+ FSB, but that is with heavy modding (new NB heatsink, volt mod, MOSFET heatsinks) this thing with a good stick of RAM should hit 200 fsb stock.

You also can't tell your ass from a hole in the ground. I suggest you do some reading on AMD's performance when compared to an equivalent Intel and then look at the prices.

Intel doesn't give you a 30% performance boost for a 30% increase in price over AMD. Not even close. AMD has really cleaned up their act since their K6 days. And if you really want some historical proof, compare an AMD Duron to an Intel Celeron.

Do you even research your topics before you open your mouth?

I just got the Asus and I am running my AMD 2800 on it and it is running great!~ I got a fucking huge fan rnning on it and it is running very cool, 20 degrees! The thing that really makes the board great is the serial ATA it is an awesome feature if you have or plan on getting an SATA HD.
