ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard review

  1. ASUS is responsible for making some of the industry's best motherboards, though many of them can also be the most expensive money can buy. Lucky for us, that is not the case with the P5N-E SLI we are testing today, at least not the expensive part.

    The P5N-E SLI is an impressive motherboard, offering the very best performance for the LGA775 platform along with all the essential features. The P5N-E SLI costs just $140, making it roughly $130 cheaper than the cheapest ASUS 680i SLI board (P5N32-E SLI), which we also used through our performance comparison tests.

    Knowing this I was interested in learning what features or options had been removed from the P5N-E SLI to allow for such a large price drop. However, after comparing the boards side by side, it is clear that very little has been sacrificed when creating the P5N-E SLI.
