Sorry man, but you didn't read the above very well. The Soundstorm audio on the nf7-S is in no way the same as the audio on the standard nfs. It has its own apu built into the southbridge. (the mcp_T [art of the chipset.) The standard nfs does not have this. As you were told above, it is easily worth twice the extra money. And with the S version, not only do you get outstanding audio. you get sata support. DO a search on soundstorm, it will help you understand.
