I was thinking Asus but am not sure. Any suggestions?
You may seem overwhelmed at first with the DFI board, but like my counterparts have said, there is so much help online that you will get the board setup. NCSA's guide is especially helpful. If you wish to get a DFI, the SLi-DR Expert
is the best, followed by the SLi-DR
, which is cheaper.
If you do not want to go through a bit of reading and trial & error, get the Asus A8N SLi Premium
, or its bigger and better brother, the A8N32
. (I could not find the A8N32 at any other Canada retailer, the only problem with that site is that it takes a long time for a product to arrive, about 1-2 weeks average.)
