Abit AV8 vs. Asus A8V - any preference? (Spacey?) ;)

Seeing as though the Abit board uses the same chipset as the Asus I take it it's just as good with UAD-1s and AMD X2 CPUs - can anyone back this up? Spacey has an AV8 doesn't he? :)

Yeah i've got the Abit AV8. Works really nice. Just don't believe the Nuendo performance meter. It says 70% when the cpu is only doing 5% lol. I use a fiebox with the firwire that comes with the motherboard. no problems at all.

Cool - thanks! Nice to hear we have alternatives for dual core/UAD-1/firewire setups. You're running a dual core Opteron aren't you?

Nice - if I can't find any A8Vs from my preferred retailers when I have the cash to upgrade I'll go for the AV8 instead.
