    ok, i got one of these a while back, and a few days after i got it i heard about the second version of it. When i start my comp it says a7n8x2.0, i'm not sure if it is the 2nd version of the board or not, is there any other way to tell? i'm buying an amd 3000+ barton soon and as far as i know you need the 2nd version for bartons. if i don't need it that extra £90 will go on top of the other to get a better graphics card...

    yep the 2.0 at the end says so m8 :) it's rev. 2

    it will say it printed on the motherboard if you want to double check.

    I experienced this as well and had a little trouble finding where it said the rev on the motherboard so in case you can't find it it's printed between the top two or three PCI slots I think.

    What is the difference between v2.0 and v1.0?

    2.0's officially support 400fsb (my 1.0 doesn't even do 370) and have better memory compatability.

    Also if you look at the mobo, it will have a sticker on the chip that says, *looks over* "ASUS 333MHz FSB Support"

    Works great with the 3000+
