that ASUS one looks pretty good, ASUS is more of a well known brand, they are built better, and more reliable

Neither are good until the 680i chipset is out. The nForce 4 and 5xx series both suck for Intel based systems. If you don't believe me, why did DFI pull their 590SLI IE chipset off the market after a week of release?

What i'm basically saying is, don't get a nvidia chipset that are currently out. Unless the chipset is called 680i or any 6xx.
