Three Core 2 motherboards from Asus

The Tech Report has a three Core 2 compatible motherboard round-up posted, consisting of three Asus-built motherboards.  Each on is based on a different chipset - the P965, 975X Express, and nForce 4 SLIX16 Intel Edition.  We used Asus' P965 (the P5B Deluxe) and nForce 4 SLIX16 (P5N32-SLI SE) boards in our Core 2 launch coverage a from a few weeks back and had good luck with both.  The TR seemed to like them as well.

"Asus is in the enviable position of having a trio of high-end enthusiast boards primed for the Core 2. More impressively, each board brings something unique to the table. The P5B Deluxe Wifi-AP Edition, for example, is Asus's first stab at Intel's new P965 Express chipset. The P5W DH Deluxe relies on an older 975X Express chipset, but it boasts a suite of new "Digital Home" accessories in addition to CrossFire support. For those who prefer their multi-GPU graphics tinted green, there's the P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe, which leverages Nvidia's nForce4 SLI X16 chipset for what may be the fastest desktop graphics platform around."
