    AN7.

    It has the Ultra chipset so it supports dual channel ram which theoretically doubles the memory bandwidth (as long as you've actually got dual channel ram).

    both have dual channel DDR. Umm the AN7 has a microprocessor called the GURU to keep the load off your main processor when monitoring stuff.

    The NF7-S does NOT support dual channel ddr.

    It has 2 single channel ddr controllers, which is not the same thing. However, it may perform just as well as true dual channel ddr.
    But I doubt it otherwise Nvidia would not have bothered with the Ultra chipset.

    The AN7 also has integrated Firewire and Lan, depends whether you need those.

    disregard the above post, it is not true
    The NF7-S does support dual channel DDr as i have that specific mobo and it is written directly on the box. and also it has both lan and firewire as well

    NF7-S

    Read it for yourselves, dickheads. Read the full specification.

    It quite clearly says it has dual controllers, not a dual controller. That means 2 controllers, not one controller which supports dual-channel.

    But you are right about the lan and firewire, they weren't mentioned on the overview, and I too hadn't bothered to look at the full spec.
