Here’s another positive review for the DFI LANParty NFII Ultra B (nForce2 ST), recently voted by members here as Best nForce2 Bundle. Colin Sun sums this up as the ”ultimate AthlonXP motherboard for enthusiasts and gamers alike” and gives it the PCStats Editor’s Choice Award:
DFI have bundled in everything from UV-sensitive IDE and floppy rounded cables to a FrontX drive panel (USB, IEEE 1394, Audio), and even a case carry strap called the "PC Transpo." The PC Transpo is great for those of you who go to LAN parties and are tired of lugging around your PC with both arms!
The DFI NF2 Ultra B board itself, is also very well equipped. The ATX sized motherboards includes Serial ATA/Serial ATA RAID, IEEE 1394, 5.1 audio, 10/100 nVIDIA LAN and a Realtek Gigabit Ethernet controller along with nVIDIA’s Soundstorm audio controller. For the true techies out there, the board also has mini power and reset buttons right on the PCB, as well as a four diagnostics LED’s.
. . . I think it’s safe to say that DFI has produced the ultimate AthlonXP motherboard for enthusiasts and gamers alike. In the process DFI have shed their old image, and truly become a consumer-friendly manufacturer. With a retail price of $200 CDN ($155 US), the DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B motherboard is one of the more expensive AthlonXP motherboards on the market, but it’s clearly the best, and one I would recommend without a second thought.
