The Tech Report contrasts three Core 2 motherboards from ASUS.  The P5B Deluxe Wifi-AP Edition (Intel 965), P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe (nForce4 SLIX16) and P5W DH Deluxe (Intel 975X) are all present.  They all have differences, one of the biggest for gamers being that the Intel965 board doesn't support SLI or CrossFire, though it does have WiFi, the nVIDIA board supports SLI, and the 975X supports CrossFire.
