Default Re: ASUS or MSI?

Are we talking about motherboards or graphic cards? I know I said this before in older threads, but I trust MSI. I've built 3 PCs before and all were by the same manufacturer. I was a novice at the time and all attempts were successful with no problems at all. Very user friendly products and very reputable.

I have no idea what Zen is talking about.

I have the ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe and I have had no major problems with it.

It stable, and got my AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0 to 2.33Ghz with some crappy Corsair Value RAM. (From now on i'm going to go high quality ram)

The A8N-SLI Deluxe has lots of cool stuff and programs and really makes it easy for a first time OCer to OC.

I have one complaint with it. The fan on the Nforce 4 SLI seems a little low quality and i'm not sure how long it's going to last.

Other then that, GREAT BOARD.

I would suggest it to anyone looking for an SLI system (Dispite AMD ZEN's opinion)

I've only owned 1 Asus board and it disappointed me. All my boards are MSI or DFI. :P
