Abit Nf7-s Or Asus A7n8x Deluxe


Recommended Posts

Which one of these boards would yous make as your choice... For a nice gaming system I plan on running one with a XP2500+ Barton, ATI 9600pro, two WD 80gig 8meg cach drives running at raid zero, a pair of PC-3200/400 mhz 512meg memory.

 

If you can also give the reasons..

 

Thanks alot everyone!

Yes. For example I recommend the Abit NF7-S because I use it.

 

I think it has better overclocking options myself. Can finer-tune the voltages and speeds.

 

Like bishop said, everyone's going to have an opinion, and you're basically not going to get anything too much from it (buy the Abit)

Both boards will perform quite equally so either one is fine. The only time I would recommend one over the other is if you were using some more extreme form of cooling in which you need the higher vcore options of the NF7-S.

personal experience with abit makes me afraid of them. I've had too many problems with their products.

 

but once again if you look around the board you'll see the exact same thing about asus from some folks.

Exactly. Every board has its day. It may be that the Abit boards are .te and I don't know it cause I got the one that's solid as a rock and actually works properly.

 

Who knows. Do your research, find out what you need, but since these boards are virtually identical - go with what's cheapest :)

nice footnote Montol

 

 

Ya liked that one eh?

I like the board, what can I say?

The fact that its red makes me happy.

 

The only thing I wish it had that the Asus does have is a bit better board design and that second LAN connection.

Thanks for all the comments and the help in making my decision. I will most likely go with the Abit because of not only the looks but the better price. I'll let yous know how everythong works out when the parts arrive and are installed.

 

Thanks again you all seem to know quite abit so get ready for some questions :D
