Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe

I'm seriously considering purchasing an Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe, paired with
an Athlon 64 4000 90nm rev. Before pulling the trigger, does anyone have any
strong objections to this mobo? What about SATA2 support (and does SATA2
even make that much of a difference)?

Thanks in advance.

Both are networked to my old WinXP HE SP2 Wintel box.

The motherboards work just fine with the gear I'm using.
My SATA 3GB/s HDDs seem fast enough, stable and quiet.
You may as well get what is current when you commit to buy ... it will
be passe soon enough.
The smaller SATA cables are less restictive to case air-flow.
You also avoid the IDE Master/Slave proper jumpering and "what HDD
works with what disc drive and where" set of issues though that isn't
a problem with experienced users.

BTW, avoid nVidia's IDE (keep what XP installs) drivers and their
firewall NAM software.

Happy trailz,
