The nForce4 chipset found in the Neo4 supports PCI-e interface and SLI, which is new technology while Neo2 does not. Get the Neo4 because it's better.

So the first neo4 mobo I listed is the same as the neo2 in that it doesn't support PCI-e interface and SLI that's why it's cheaper

What exactly is PCI-e interface and SLI?

Default well...

you see, the thing about neo1 was that he was the original character in the matrix. Now, his real name was Thomas A. Anderson. There is a big difference though when you start comparing. When the matrix animated came out, the guy's name wasn't actually thomas anymore, it was more like tastie wheats.. no wait... that's not it.. i forget his name, but it wasn't thomas.. and he died to escape the matrix. There's a big difference.
