ASUS M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition Motherboard Review

From a features point of view, the M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition motherboard can't be beat. To go along with SLI technology, the board comes with a remote control, a 512MB USB Flash drive, the ScreenDUO PDA like device and more, this board is about the most feature-rich motherboard on the market today. The additional features that are geared towards the new operating system make this board an excellent choice for those wanting an AMD-based board. With the advent of the Intel Core 2 based platform more and more people are moving back to Intel for their high-end computing needs. The extra features and general performance make this board an Editor's Choice award.

The only negatives of this board are really out of ASUS's control for the most part. I wish NVIDIA would open their SLI chipset to allow Crossfire support, as that would allow users more choice in the boards they build. The other negative was the non-upgradeability of the 512MB Flash card that's on the board. The M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition board retails for $249.99 with it on Newegg for $235. At this price, the board is a little on the high side of pricing but with the features and performance it is well worth it. I give it an Editors Choice Award as it does have an abundance of features not found on other boards and its performance is near the top as well. Good Job ASUS!
