Comments: My first NVidia card and I am very impressed. Especially for the price. Yes there are better cards out there, but not in this price range. I can play CSS, BF2 at 1280x1040 with absolutely no problems.

Most Critical Review

Review 2 a year later

ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Decent MoBo, i bought this board a little over a year ago when the price was well over xxx. Too much for what I got. Pro's: RAID 0 was very easy to set up. The onboard audio sounded great even though I ended up going with the audigy 2. I like the instant music feature and the ability to change splash screens...simple minds simple pleasures.

Cons: Had problems with the onboard LAN at first. Found out that my chipset fan had died and was overheating. After RMAing for a new fan, the everything worked fine. I replaced the CPU cooler with a Zaleman and now everyonce in a while I get a POST error message saying my fan has failed, even though I can see it spinning just fine. Tried SLI w/ 2 6600GT's, noticed a little improvement but not much. Ended up using a single 7800GT which blew both the 6600's outta the water.

Overall Review: Newegg is great. Ordering the chipset fan wasn't that big of a deal. It was delivered fairly fast. The thing that was most frustrating was Asus tech support swore up and down that I was shorting the board and thats why my onboard LAN wasn't working. After reinstalling the board and making sure that nothing was shorting I still had problems. Then Asus told me that it was a driver problem. When I told them it wasn't they wouldn't believe me. All of my problems went away as soon as I replaced the chipset fan. Looking back I probably could have got a better board for the price but all in all this one is decent.

Best keyboard

Pros: Anti-Ghosting tech on this keyboard is amazing. Build quality is not what you'd expect from Microsoft (much better). Price per feature is unmatched. Better than other keyboards out there that cost twice as much.

Cons: Wish the RED back-lighting was a bit brighter. ESC key is a bit small.

Overall Review: I have owned multiple "gaming" keyboards in the past such as Logitech G15 and Razer Lycosa, the Sidewinder beats all of them hands down and costs much less. Buy this keyboard, you won't regret it.

UM...alright

Pros: Easy to install. Love the SLI feature.

Cons: Chipset fan went out about 11 mo after I got the board. Ordering a new one under warranty was no problem though. Having problems with onboard LAN. Finally just installed Realtek adapter, fixed that problem.

Overall Review: If I hadn't had so many problems with onboard LAN I'd be a lot happier with board. Also it would have been nice to have rounded IDE cables included.

Comments: As far as lcd monitors go this is the best one I have ever seen. The response time is unreal. Did however arrive with one dead pixel. As small as that sounds, it is suprisingly annoying. If it weren't for that pixel, I would be very very impressed.
