P6N SLI-FI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130082

OR

P5N-E SLI
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142

I want the one that has better cost/benefit. I'm not looking for SLI. Please state your reason for which.

I've heard that the P6N's OCing capabilities, but i haven't heard as much about it as i have the P5N-E.

I agree with mcogan, although the price point is nice on the MSI, I'd go with the Asus before the MSI. MSI is a great brand, but their Bios always seems to lack in OCing potential.

I would not touch MSI with a ten million mile pole.

For what reason?

Edit: Would a mod please change the title to "P6N SLI-FI vs. P5N-E"? I forgot to put the P5N-E part lol

MUILTIPLE rmas over the years.....dead AGP/PCI/PCI EXpress slots....bad RAM slots.....had a few where the caps oozed and another few that were MISSING caps altogether.

Had a couple where the MOSFETS blew up ( litterally )

No.....MSI is a HORRIBLE company. Avoid at all costs.

All that REALLY happened to you? That really happened and you continued to buy enough of their boards to have 5+ problems? Or is this just an exaggeration

And mod, if you would please, rename this thread to "P6N SLI-FI vs P5N-E"

yes that REALLY happened to me. I give companies LOADS of chances...and MSI blew it.

So is the poll unanimous, or does anyone wanna tell me about the MSI?

And mod, if you would please, rename this thread to "P6N SLI-FI vs P5N-E"
