    I was gonna go with the usual 8RDA+ for this new rig and hooking up...then i see the A7N8X-X from ASUS...with the new 400FSB support as well as a ALC650 6CH w/built in HP amplifier. Does it support Dual Channel like everyone else?

    I don't think the other nFroce2 Mobos carry this "HP Amplifier"...is this so ?

    I mean the thing is 89.99 versus the 83 of Epox. I trust them both...but dunno much about the "X" model from Asus. You guys think there will be a difference? BTW the MOBO wiill be coupled with a 2600+.

    Thx in advance for any comments and help.:cheers:

    I don't know much either but...

    The nForce2 400 is Single Channel, for Dual Channel look for a nForce2 Ultra 400. In the Asus case the A7N8X or A7N8X Deluxe

    the a7n8x-x has all the same ammenities as the regular a7n8x, the difference is it does not come with as many accesories like a gameport header and extra souder header.

    all asus motherboards with the "X" at the end are this way.

    Have you gone to Epox site lately? They have a new motherboard listed that supports the FSB 400, it is 8RDAE. Just in case, you would like another option.

    I have been waiting for ASUS to come out with info on the A7N8X-X, too. I even emailed them last week and still have not gotten a reply.

    I also read some comments at Tom's Hardware Community Guide, about ASUS and their support service. It doesn't sound very good. And I have had an Epox before, and when I emailed them, their support sent me a reply within 12 hours. So I'm still undecided.

    Here's an update: if you go to ASUS site and instead clicking on "motherboards", type in the model# in search products the specs will come up. Also, $86.50 at accupc.com including shipping.

    Maybe as the nForce2 based mobo leaves the VIA based one well behind. :devil win
