hi

Just thought i would say that if i were u i would never buy a MSI board. they are a cheap brand and arent the best quality, i have the Neo4-F and its already died on me after 3 weeks using it and no overclocking... I have done bios updates on my board so it supports my X2 and since the BIOS updates the board has been stuffed. It wont shutdown with Windows Shutdown, u actually have to hold the power button in and also it makes my wireless dropout. Man u r much better of with a ASUS A8N-SLI/Deluxe/Premium or a DFI Nf4 SLI board, u will appreciate these boards a lot more.(also with my MSI board if u have 4 sticks of RAM installed they are limited to DDR-333). Dont htink i am a MSI hater, i use to be a MSI fan but with my last 2 MSI boards my mind has been changed....

The thing is i am from South Africa and there are no DFI retailers around. I dont want gigabyte mobos and the best value for money I have seen is the MSI Neo4. Also based on the anand tech review, this board can oc as well as a DFI SLI-DR.

ive had no problems with my msi so far, and there are two or three other regulars that have the neo-4. i think things like sata 2 etc and sli are the differences between sli and neo-4. both are nforce 4 chipset.

That is only your opinion, MSI make very high quality board's.

Some of the highest quality board are made by MSI infact.

Don't get the A8N SLI Deluxe, get the A8N32 SLI, it's much better.

It has some good overclocking options and also support's 2 x 16x PCI-E Slot's in SLI mode, unlike the the A8N SLI which only support's 2 x 8x PCI-E Slot's in SLI mode.

I would love to get that board. Problem is that its a bit pricey and the MSI board has proven to be a good performer plus its got a sound blaster audio card built in. Anywayz is the SLI-F newer than the Neo4/SLI or is it older?
