In my quest to do an upgrade I have been looking at Mobo's with 800MHZ FSB.

I have narrowed it down to 2 boards.

Asus P4P800-E Deluxe (i865PE chipset) ($155 CDN)

Or

Asus P4C800-E Deluxe (i875 chipset) ($245 CDN)

http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=P4C800-E%20Deluxe&langs=01

I know the main diff is the chipset. I also do not care what the on-board audio is due tot he fact I use my audigy.

My main question is this, what is the diff between the two chipset's? The diff in price on these boards is $90 (CDN).

Any thought's advice would be appreciated.

See you in the fence....

Asus P4B 533 Intel 2.4GHZ
1 GIG Ram
GeForce FX 5700 256MB (56.72)
SB Audigy
MSFF2 & X45 throttle

I don't know much about Pentium motherboards as I've used AMD cpus for the last 4 years... but there's got to be a good reason why one of the boards costs 90 bucks more than the other!
