  1. After reading the info on asus webpage still connot understand the
    difference between these 2 boards.

    What is the improvement on the pc4800.e board?

    (Copied from the 'Difference' thread earlier today)...

    P4C800-E has:
    - CSA-based Gigabit LAN controller rather than 3Com (doesn't clog up PCI
    - Intel & Promise RAID controllers (I think -D version just had Promise
    - 4x SATA cables rather than 2
    - 2x SATA power cables (-D version had none)
    - 4-port USB2.0 / Game port & IEEE1394 backplate modules (not sure if these
    came with -D version or not, it's not listed on the specs on the web)
    - Northbridge heatsink has been rotated so it's square with the CPU, giving
    more space for large heatsinks (though apparently this was done on later
    versions of the -D board)

    It uses the intel networking chip and uses a direct bus to the rest of the
    system unlike the non E board which uses a slower (to some) 3COM chip that
    uses a PCI connection to the system.
