DFI X48 or ASUS P45

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So basically it comes down to this. I can get a new DFI LT X48-T2R for what I call cheap ($349 AUD). Now I will never xfire but I could see myself using all the pci-e x16 lanes. Having a look at the DFI line up shows that they don't plan on launching an LT P45 with DDR2.

I like the specs and look of the upcoming ASUS Maximus II Formula and I can't see the price going below $350 AUD. No one really knows how P45 is going to OC but I'm sure it will preform on par with the X48 chipset.

So my questions are:
  • Should I wait for the Maximus II Formula or should I grab the DFI product.
  • How reliable are DFI boards?
  • How reliable are ASUS Intel ROG boards?
  • What would you get?

Yeah I know that's' a lot of questions


EDIT : Doesn't matter, I just ordered the DFI product

From my limited experience I've heard more RMA's/issues with Asus than DFI. I personally bought a DK x48 (my first DFI). The BIOS does have a steep learning curve for overclocking but well worth the education IMHO.
I will never buy another brand again.
