Just purchased Asus A7N8X from www.tekheads.co.uk. The description on the
website says right at the end: 'this board is revision 2.0' - however, when
it arrived it was a revision 1.4 board. Should I complain? Am I losing out
on anything here in terms of spec? Does the rev 2.0 board cost more?

You are right. The revision 2 has official support for the 200mhz FSB with a
later revision NVidia Northbridge chip - the 1.8D, iirc.

The only 'confusion' was that NVidia released a statement at the time that
AMD announced the 200mhz Barton to say that their NVidia chipset will
support the CPU. Unfortunately not all the boards were made equal and so
this meant that many board makers soon brought out newer revisions which,
imo, simply tightened their quality control rather than rely on any
significant changes to achieve stability.

The 'old' revisions had some issues on getting to that speed where voltage
mods were done by some to attempt to bring stability at those speeds.

I would certainly be returning it and amazed that they still had stock of
this old revision - don't let them make you pay postage for its return
either and see if you can be compensated for your inconvenience.
