I don't know anything about the mobo in terms of features and stuff, but I've noticed quite a lot of people recommending it. However, I've also noticed a lot of people complaining about having problems with the mobo too.

You'll have to decide whether you want to take the risk, and hope that you won't experience any problems with it.

Personally, I prefer Gigabyte mobos because they are rich in features and have not had any problems with the 3 that I've been through.

There are several versions of the A7N8X.

A7N8X This one is older chipset and only 333 FSB
A7N8X-X Low cost version of the Deluxe, different chipset
A7N8X Deluxe Top of the line

A friend just got the -X version and he could not run his gainward GE4-4800 with it. No video output at all. An old GE2 and a new 9600 PRO worked fine. We have no idea why. Gainward overclcoked the vid card at the factory and that may be the reason, but thats just a guess. This is the only documented, unresolved problem I've seen with the A7N8X.

On the up side the guy bought the 9600 PRO and is very happy with his new system... Just don't tell his wife about the new vid card.

The ABIT NF7-S is getting a lot of good reviews from users lately.
