is there any "real" benefits to using the newer nForce 590 over the older nForce 4? I read a lot of articles on the 590/570, but fail to see the practical advantage. Perhaps if I can find a review comparing the two...

The three boards I'm considering at this point are:

ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe (nForce 4) -> This board has PATA RAID

ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP (nForce 590) -> This board has wifi

ASUS P5NSLI (nForce 570) -> This board is just plain cheap

the wifi thing isn't a big deal and isn't that good anyways. and out of the other two, the board with PATA is obviously better (hence the larger price tag), so check the Asus website and see if they have everything you want on the cheaper board.

I bought my p5b deluxe wifi from them, it was cheapest I can find online, plus newegg charges me tax.

I'm strongly considering that evga board, due to the price being so close for a brand new chipset. Newegg also charges me tax, but I think the rma process for newegg is so good that it might justify the cost. What is your experience with this company? Any rma's?

Well, I haven't used my board yet, I am building my system in 4 more weeks.

I watched their site for 3 weeks or so already, and resellerrating only has 6 reviews for that site, all positive. the p5b deluxe board disappeared from their site the day I was buying, I e-mailed them and got a reply in 2 days. They restocked it, I bought it, got it in 3 days. The board looks fine.

For me the price difference was about $40 (counting tax and shipping) that's why I went to that site, hopefully no rma needed. I'd determine by the price difference, because you can still rma through evga no?

ps newegg return on this one: # Return Policy: Limited Non-Refundable 30-Day Return Policy. Not all newegg products have the same return policy, even if they are in the same category.
