    Im going to RMA my A7N8X Deluxe board and was wondering if I should get the
    same board (from eBuyer) or should I get the cheaper one (the X not Dleuxe)
    as I have seen many more success stories with the X.

    The Deluxe board seems to have lots of Bios problems - and probably why my
    board is dead.

    Your thoughts appreciated...

    Got two PCs both running on A7N8X Deluxe and have had no problems
    what-so-ever. One machine is about 7 months old the other about 2 months.

  3. I bought an A7N8X-X and had lots of trouble with it. Nothing I tried would
    make it run at 400MHz FSB without stability problems. Swapped it out for a
    Jetway NForce board, which works just fine and is both faster and cheaper
    than the Asus.
    Asus BIOS's are always a bit dodgy. All their boards I've used recently
    (A7V8X, A7N8X and their -X variants) have had to be regularly flashed in a
    vain attempt to get them working okay.

    I have the A7N8X Deluxe and it's been great. I did read somewhere
    (here???) that the cheaper board can give better performance!!

    I havent had any problems with the BIOS on the board, but I found it
    'fussy' about the RAM (could just be the shop selling me dodgy RAM)

  6. You might get lucky. The A7V8X boards are getting on a bit and they've been
    through lots of BIOS revisions and design tweeks, so they're semi-okay now.
    The only lingering flaws that remain are problems with some 8X AGP cards
    (particularly the Radeon 9700/9700Pro), occasion problems running Palomino
    type Athlons, and a general pickyness about what memory they'll run a
