I've built computers based on ASUS...
Strengths: Feature loaded. 800FSB, 1394, USD, RAID (if you ever would want it), support for SATA and IDE (up to about 8 drives as if anyone would want that many), solid clean design, well made.
Weakness: 3C Gigabit LAN chip was a mistake. Given the over all cost of the board they should have used the Intel LAN chip. Must be very very careful with memory selection, as with any mb running these speeds.
I've built computers based on ASUS MBs in sequence from the old P2C, to P4B, to P4B266, until now P4C800 Deluxe. ASUS design and quality is first rate and I've never had any real problems with any ASUS MB. With the P4C800 I built two machines at once housed in a Thermaltake case with 7 fans and a 500W psu. I've installed an Intel P4 3.2C Ghz HT processor, nVidia (read e-VGA) 5900 Ultra 256,...

I've built computers based on ASUS MBs in sequence from the old P2C, to P4B, to P4B266, until now P4C800 Deluxe. ASUS design and quality is first rate and I've never had any real problems with any ASUS MB. With the P4C800 I built two machines at once housed in a Thermaltake case with 7 fans and a 500W psu. I've installed an Intel P4 3.2C Ghz HT processor, nVidia (read e-VGA) 5900 Ultra 256, Creative Audigy 2 Platinum EX, CD-ROM read/writer, DVD read/writer, 2 x Seagate 160 SATAs, and a Dazzle/Pinnacle DVC-II Videa Capture. With a system this loaded you might expect problems, but Windows XP installed flawlessly and the system ran well right from the start. Once I installed the ASUS supplied drivers for the MB it got even better. I had read reviews that the memory selection had tobe done carefully so I opted for Kingston Hyper-X PC3500/434MHz matched pairs of 512MByte DDRAM modules. With four (2 pair) installed properly in pairs in the blue and black connectors respectively I've a total of 2 GByte of DDRAM and Dual CHannel mode operation. Since building the computer I've successfully overclocked it 30% without problems, but run it at 20% else the case teperatures start to climb up a bit.
This is the fastest sweetest machine I've ever made. All from newegg, and I've just ordered the third to build for my daughter.
Get this board, select the memory wisely, treat it right with a good PSU and other hardware; and you'll have the fastest/most stable PC in the neighborhood.

Get the P4C800-E Deluxe...
Weakness: design errors
Get the P4C800-E Deluxe version(remake) guys. This board is old. It can't be stressed more. Asus has made the mistake of puttin 3com lan on such a powerful motherboard. Intel Gigabit LAN is much better. The tiny bit of extra money is worth it.

I used this board with P4 2.4C,...
Strengths: very stable
Weakness: as if
I used this board with P4 2.4C, 512MB 3200 Dual Channel RAM, GeForce 4TI 4800SE, and the Sonata case. The system is stable and fast. The onboard NIC is sweet, no noticable slowdowns. No problems at all with XP Pro. Once the drivers from Asus are installed, everything is smooth.

Strengths: fast at benchmarks runs nice when it runs
Weakness: sux everything else crashes bsod'd turns on when it wants..it crashes in games too
crashes acts like a pos.miines geting rma'd right now.maybe i will like my next one! good thing newegg rocks i wont be down for long...i wouldnt say this thing is worth 100 bux..i wish i woulda got a P4P800..cheaper and just as fast.well i would give this board a 6 -10..

Asus did it right this time, as...
Strengths: The Asus P4C800 Deluxe is the fastest and most stable motherboard that I have ever used. Coupled with AI, the board has allowed me to overclock my system by 30% with no problems.
Weakness: The only one that I can see would be the 3COM gigabit ethernet. Asus should have paid for the Intel CSA. Since they didn't, the ethernet chip uses the southbridge which can lead to system slow downs.
Asus did it right this time, as always, by releasing the P4C800. It has advanced AI built right in. So you can do pretty much anything you want to your computer without worrying about messing something up. It also has support for the new 800MHz FSB processors coming out from Intel. Just imagine how fast it would be with 2GB of Dual Channel DDR400!!! I strongly recommend this board to anyone who...

I strongly recommend this board to anyone who is looking for the highest performance, the fastest gaming, rock solid stability, and the best features.
