A8V vs A8V Deluxe??

Is there any difference in stability/performance using the Asus A8V vs the A8V Deluxe? Everyone that mentions a working setup seems to use the Deluxe. What is the real difference between them that would affect UAD performance?

None. The deluxe has firewire, which is useful for many users, plus extra SATA, which isn't so useful and tends to be disabled by most users, as far as I can tell. If you don't need firewire (or will be happy using a PCI card for it) then the standard version ought to be fine.

There's also the Abit AV8, which is more or less the same, except comes with firewire as standard.

Firewire shares PCI slot 1, 5 and AGP, which seems too much for me. I prefer to disable it in my setup with 3 UAD cards.

Aren't a lot of people using this setup with a Fireface though? There has to be firewire somewhere.
