How much better would an Asus p5ne sli be over my P5Q SE2? i can get one for around £25 is it worth the buy or not,planning on going sb soon anyway. Only interested because of pci-e slots

Isn't your P5Q the P45/P43 chip? If I'm not mistaken the P5NE is the 680i chip right? The P45 should be the better board.

Yeah mines a P45. Doe's that mean all of these SLI boards for 775 like 680i 780i etc. are rubbish? Might get the UD3P, would you say that its worth £50? i can get one for around that?

P5ne-sli is a 650i chipset and its not THAT quad (q8400) friendly.

The P5N-E SLI would be ten times worse then your P5Q SE2.

The P5N-E SLI is probably one of the worst boards in the whole wide world for overclocking Quads. It does not even support 45nm Quads, though some claims they work in the board.

Your P5Q SE2 is not the best board in the world, but it is P45 and do an okay job. A better P45 board would only gain you a few hundred MHz on that Q8400. Worlds best P45 overclocker boards, like EP45 UD3P or the likes would maybe get your Q8400 stable at 3.8 - 3.9GHz.

Also, the PCI-E slots are 1.1 not 2.0 so you won't be running any PCI-E 2.0 cards at full speed.
