Default ASUS Boards

Im getting another board and seen the P5N32 E which uses the 620 chipset and also i seen the striker which uses the same chipset.

Whats the difference in these baords besides the LCD on the IO?

These boards have alot of the same features like SATA, IEEE, digital audio and the other stuff expected in good boards.

VOID THE P5N32-E !!!! Worst board i have owned, was impossible to keep stable even at stock clocks !!!!

The P5N32-E PLUS seems to be the better board however. Dispite being a nForce 650i Hybrid board still has most features of the P5N32-E.

The newest 1002 BIOS is very stable... actually been stable for me since the 0903.

Yea, but it has the LCD on the I/O. which is a extra cost to the board.
What am i getting with the striker that im not getting on the other models other than the LCD.

Is performance good? and is it noticble?

I read a review somewhere that compared the P5NE-SLI to the Striker. The results were surprising.

Check it: http://www.techspot.com/review/43-asus-p5n-e-sli/
