    With the Conroe comming up i have my eyes set on two different motherboards, the ASUS P5W DH Deluxe and the DFI INFINITY 975X/G.

    This Thread is to show a comparison and contrast type of format kind of like a Venn Diagram to better help me make my decision or any other gurus with the same situation.

    I can start off by stateing:
    ASUS offers built in WiFi, DDR2 800 support, and make ur day a lot easier with AI Overclocking

    DFI offers Overclocking Precision and cool UV cables

    *bold words = key factors

    however no cool UV cables... the infinity is the uglyest board around...

    Asus P5W DH DELUXE - Great mobo, with a lot of kool futures
    DFI - Ugly mobo, but I heard it can overclock good. Correct me if im wrong.

    I rec the ASUS. :)

    alrite now i can forget about the ASUS, but what about the DFI? it was a s939 wonder, hands down the best overclocker for s939. Will DFI be a force with s775 with its DFI Infinity 975X/G?

    I'll put it 5 in words - DFI is big and ugly. I'll try to give a link to a review of that board.
