"Overclocking

I was very impressed with the overclocking abilities of the A8N32-SLI Deluxe. Simply put, this is the BEST nForce 4-based board for overclocking I have ever had the pleasure of using. It was rock solid stable in all our testing. I was able to push it to a healthy 330MHz FSB without difficulty."

Dated January 30, 2006. HardOCP has tested all the DFI's as well.

The top DFI board is $200 on Newegg, the the Asus is $230. $30 isn't much of a difference when looking for the best.

Burn, I'm just quoting HardOCP. They are pretty credible when it comes to testing.

Also the Asus has 8 Phase power and passive heatpipe cooling (and external sata raid with 5 sata ports total). The DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert has 4 phase power and active fan cooling, with four sata ports.

The Asus has Firewire as well. The DFI has 10 USB and so does the Asus.

Asus: Two PCI-Express x16 slots with SLI support at full x16, x16 mode, one PCI-Express x4 slot (supports x4 and x1 add-in cards) and three PCI expansion slots;

DFI: 2 PCI Express x16 slots, 1 PCI Express x1 slot, 1 PCI Express x4 slot, 3 PCI slots

So basically, the DFI has one more slot; a x4 and a x1 PCI whereas the Asus combines them. Have you seen any x4 or x1 devices on the market? I haven't (except maybe a wireless nic card and the asus also has a model with built in wireless nic, DFI doesn't).

I always wonder why people say "wait a few months till the newer tech is out". do they not realize that in a few months something else will be around the corner? You have to at some point bite the bullet and buy, budget allowing what you find fits your needs. No computer hardware is future proof.
