According to a price comparison site (http://uk.shopping.c...rce4_sli_&ST=or) there are over 10 Soket LGA775 mobos with an nForce4 chipset. The chipest one is the ASUS P5ND2-SLI. The next one up is Gigabite's GA-8N SLI Pro. The there's Abit's NI8-SLi GR. All these three appear to cost (well) under £100.
I was just about to go for the ASUS, when I came accross various reviews (including this one: http://www.techfear....xe_30day.shtml), which say that although the board is generally good, it is quite unstable (it overheats, etc.).
So I started looking for reviews about Gigabite's GA-8N SLI Pro, and was not able to find many such reviews. There are a few on the Royal and Quad Royal versions of the GA-8N, but these two latter ones cost over £100, which if I could avoid it, I would not like to spend on a mobo.
Therefore, I was left with no choice but trying to find out more about Abit's NI8-SLi GR. Guess what? Almost no reviews, apart from one or two very negative ones (eg: http://www.custompc....ni8sli-gr.html).
Sorry about the long intro, but it was necessary in order ask the followig questions:
1. What (other) good/stable Socket LGA775 nForce4-SLI mobos under or around £100 can you recommend?
2. Is it worth risking and going for ASUS P5ND2-SLI?
3. Is Gigabite's GA-8N SLI Pro a better choice than ASUS?
4. Should I really spend another £50-£75 and buy something a LGA775 SLI mobo for around £125-£150, and if so, which one has the better reputation?
Your help/suggestions will be much appreciated.
