Foxconn N570SM2AA vs Asus M2N-E SLI MBs'; any input here?

Postposted on Thu Nov 22, 2007 10:07 am

I'm looking at the Foxconn N570SM2AA and the Asus M2N-E SLI MBs' to replace a nForce2 Epox box. Before anyone votes for Asus, please take a look here from the Newegg reviews and from an AnandTech thread on this board;

(Hopefully, the Newegg link will be the reviews sorted for the lowest rating first)

I can't remember when I saw so many repeated problems with memory, audio & USB with a MB. I understand that the Asus name is very popular, but after reading all of that it really put me off, so I'm looking at the Foxconn. I also understand Foxconn is a 'smaller' palyer most noted for their OEM work.

I'm looking for input from anyone that has or had this board.

My reasons for these choices are they both have 2 IDE connectors and either a optical and/or a digital audio out. I also wanted a AMD based system. (Please don't bother telling me about the advantage Intel has right now).

Thanks in advance.

You can get the terrific Foxcon C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H for only $104 after a $60 mail in rebate. It is the Nforce 590 reference motherboard and includes all the bells and whistles that the chipset has to offer.

Thanks, but it only has 1 IDE connector (I don't want a adapter card) and it is 2x the price.
