ASUS P5N-E SLI

Reviews

Last months launch of NVIDIAs 600i series was a welcomed one by enthusiasts. It was finally a chance to step away from Intels proprietary chipset and to start taking advantage of what nForce is capable of. Of course, we can't overlook the SATA and Audio issues that proved problematic for many. NVIDIA since released a hotfix that takes care of the SATA data corruption problem.

Pros and cons aside, any motherboard that uses the 680i chipset retails for around $250. Personally, I think this is well worth it for what the boards offer. But what if you got rid of a few small features? You wind up with a board like the ASUS P5N-E SLI, which uses the 650i chipset that costs far less.

Who's the 650i marketed for? Those who want a solid board for a great price and doesn't skimp on performance potential. After my week of testing with the board, I can admit that it's a fantastic performer, regardless of the price range.

Full Story.
