ASUS M4A79 Deluxe Motherboard Review

ASUS has done their usual solid job with a new motherboard release. As the chipsets used on this motherboard are not new, the performance across different boards using these two chipsets should be pretty close and they are. A lot of AM2+ motherboards support the AM3 CPUs with a BIOS Flash allowing for easy upgrade options for older motherboard chipsets. ASUS's board has support for four ATI cards in CrossfireX which is a great way to get the best performance out of your new motherboard in games. In terms of features, ASUS really can't be beat with their extra features like Q-Shield and 8+2 Phase Power. By Benjamin Sun
