Asus P5E3 vs. Asus Maximus Extreme

Postby sohel3 » Fri Jul 04, 2008 2:18 pm

Hello. I'm looking around for a new motherboard to go in my new build
and am interested in two Asus boards:

- Asus P5E3 (£111)
- Asus Maximus Extreme (£177)

However, having looked on the Dabs website (which is where I got the
prices from) the only things the more expensive model has over the
chepaer model are:

- 1 extra eSATA port
- SMBIOS 2.4 support instead of SMBIOS 2.3
- "2-Phase DDR3" (whatever that is)
- ASUS COP EX
- ASUS CPU Level Up
- ASUS Crosslinx Technology

DDR3 is RAM SLOTS.
The rest depends on what you want to accomplish.
And what type of devices you will install
If you have any SATA in mind you might need an installer.
It's not easy.
A basic just get by with the internet and not classy games
the less you need to spend.They should be described a Gamers if they are.
The other items items should be detailed in the stats.
Note : A SATA port only connects 1 hard drive or device. :wink:
