P5B Deluxe is a proven overclocker. Solid board, well known, overclocks VERY good. Can do Crossfire, but only at x16, x4.

The ASUS P5N32-E SLI is a fairly new board. Also a good clocker (not sure if it's as good as the P5B Deluxe, but it's close). Of course the benefit is SLI at x16, x16.

I just got the ASUS P5N32-E SLI myself (open box from Newegg.. came with ALL the accessories).

Rule of thumb, ALWAYS get an Intel Core Logic for an Intel CPU.

nForce's only forte is that you can slap two geforce cards together and brag about having SLI, other than that? Intel chipsets are better overall.

I'm not saying the 6xx series isn't good, it's just that there's something better overall. I, personally wouldn't go any other way nor have I gone nor I ever will.

vi3t, I'm using the Asus Deluxe w/ an nvidia card, and it works nicely. I use the x4 slot for my RAID card, which provides more then enough bandwidth to it (Areca makes RAID cards that support 24 drives for PCIe x8, so my little 4 drive card has more then enough bandwidth for it running at x4 speed).

If you're actually going to get 2 video cards, get a board that has 2 x16 slots, else, the Asus Deluxe is a a good card.

Yes, if you want to go two video cards, the ASUS P5N32-E SLI is your choice. Thuis board supports SLI, which indeed for nVidia cards only. but it runs them at x16, x16 speeds.

The P5B Deluxe can run two ATI cards (NOT nVidia), but only at x16, x4 speeds.

There also is the Asus P5W DH Deluxe, which also can run two ATI cards (NOT nVidia), but at x8, x8 speeds.


Main question: why two video cards? No need whatsoever, unless you run resolutions greater than 1680x1050 (i.e. a monitor of 24" or greater... and I mean a monitor, not a TV)
