New AMD build $1500 - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
Alright thanks I'll go with the Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe. I found one for far less then the dfi expert. If it doesnt go right I can always switch to dfi later. Id rather be safe then sorry. Since I saved the extra money on the system and I'm below my $1500 limit I'm going with the seasonic 600W power supply. Dont want to spend the money on the 2nd 7800gt later and not have enough power. I appreciate all the help guys and should start my build some time next week. Ill be sure to post my results and pics when the time comes.

The Asus is faster at stock and OC's almost as well as the DFI (And is also faster than the new MSI dual 16x Diamond board). Great choice, you won't regret it!

The link from Anandtech that demonstrates performance benefits over the DFI. Also Tom's Hardware just posted a review on the new MSI dual 16x board and compared it to the Asus. Guess who won?
