    i was wondering whether it's absolutely stupid to get a intel brand canterwood mobo (for me cusin that is), asus just looks to be 75$ more expensive than intel brand and it offers only a sound card that intel doesn't. :?:
    i don't consider abit 'cos i saw this one comparison where asus kicked abit ass.
    i dunno which bios is used with intel board and i am not optimistic on them including overclocking features.
    which one is the best buy, performance, price and features considered???

    (btw whichever one we choose, he's gonna be delighted, cos this chipset rules ):thumb:

    well it depends, the intel board will almost certainly be rock solid stable, as well as very fast at default settings, after all they designed the chipset. But in Intel fashion it will have NO overclocking features whatsoever I don't know much about the Asus board, but the Intel board will be very good, except in terms of overclocking, and other general bios tweaking :thumb:

    both are great boards, some of the asus boards support faster Ram.. but if your not conserned about that they both preform really well. so I say vote with your wallet

    I have an Intel MoBo and find it very good the onboard 5.1 sound card is excellent quality and boots up very fast. But like said, you can't oc, guess you can never have something perfect.

    Ya'd likely find the ASUS onboard sound just as good if not better.

    if money is a concern - why not get an i865 springdale board
    most of the same features for less money

    I've seen Asus, Abit, Soltek & MSI versions available in my area
    ....unless you absolutely need ECC support:rolleyes:
