Striker also has the external SATA connectors taht the other models don't have. But that's about it.

Well, it depends on when the reviews were written.

I have eSATA on my P5NE-SLI.

The only way I would go Striker over what I have now, is for a high powered SLI system. Which I may never have, since they still haven't gotten around to making DualView SLI compatible. That review just shows that in reality, 99% of users won't ever notice the difference in performance.

if you have the money get the striker, if not get the p5n32-e sli plus (see my sig).

edit: if you go 680i in any form make sure you water cool the north bridge.

I've been using a P5B Deluxe (Wifi) since August...I love that freakin thing...My favorite part is when OCing, to reset the bios you can just turn the power supply switch to "OFF" for 30 seconds and it resets No more opening the case and flipping the jumper or pulling out the CMOS battery
