I would class this board as a board for experienced users. It is the sweetest board around, providing you configure it correctly. If you do not, then there can be problems. I have build 5 amd systems this year and used the Asus in 3 of them. Out of those 3 only one had problems (My One!) I have noticed that there is a minor issue with the sound card drivers but that is not too much of an issue (The volume shoots up to max when using 2 apps that both use the sound card!) That can be solved when I reinstall Windows but I cannot be bothered!

As for overclocking, it is awesome, I have had my 2500+ up to 2.3Ghz (3400+) and have had PC Mark scores of over 7200!

Asus A7N8X Deluxe rocks - been voted best gaming bored 2003 by more than just a couple of review sites. Would love to back up that statement with some links but am too lazy to search for them again.

Had mine for half a year methinks and it hasn't given me trouble.
Well besides the time taken to configure it properly. And it's stubborness when first overclocking it - but it's learnt it's place now and does as I command.

If you want an excellent board go for this one (actually go for the most recent model that has Wi-Fi)
All my jealous little friends immediately bought this bored after I got it.
*sigh*
It's so satisfying to have wannabes trying to keep up with me.
