    The second mobo has the NF4 chipset and supports SLI. Personally, I would steer well clear of both these offerings. You get what you pay for. Fore-warned is fore-armed mate. Good luck and my advice is to save up your money and buy something decent. Going SLI is a substantial investment and the mobo is the centerpiece odf the whole thing. In other words, if you can't afford the $50 for a better mobo then stay out of that league (SLI) altogether and invest elsewhere.

    as previously stated, neither of the boards you linked would be of satisfactory quality/performance. ecs hasn't ever made a good board excepting the k7s5a pro (old socket A, out of production), and biostar is in the same class. i strongly advise you get yourself the msi k8n neo4, which comes in both sli and non-sli versions. similar products from other name brand companies such as gigabyte and asus are also good.
