Asus K8N-E Deluxe Socket 754 Motherboard

Subject: Motherboards
Manufacturer: Asus

Introduction & Specs

There seems to be more AMD options on the market than ever before and all in different stages of product life. Many of the motherboards we have reviewed recently here on PCPerspective have been the cutting-edge of consumer PC technology. But as great as these boards are, they are not that appealing to all consumers, especially to those who are looking to upgrade cheaply. These newer boards often require additional investments into more expensive CPUs, different RAM, or even a new PCI-Express video card.

The Asus K8N-E Deluxe we are reviewing today is an Athlon 64 / 754-pin socket motherboard that supports standard DDR 1 and AGP specs — so all your old hardware will work, and all you need is a 754-pin Athlon 64 CPU.

Taking a quick glance at the packaging and specs, I can tell that the K8N-E Deluxe is going to be another great package from Asus. But with so many AMD options now available on the market, how does this particular board fit in with your plans? Let's take a look and find out.
