I am interested in building a NLE machine based on the recommendations in the first diy article (DIY Chalenge I). However, where I live (South Asia), the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard is not available.
Would there be any significant disadvantage to using the Asus P4P800-E deluxe board instead? This appears to have all the features required including on-board firewire. The only difference I see is that it uses the Intel 865 chipset instead of the 875.
I am presently editing on a Toshiba laptop (P4 1.8GHz, 512MB RAM), so anything should be an improvement
