This quote from the American philosopher and pragmatist William James led us to try a few different testing methodologies for today's article.

While the two boards are targeted for completely different audiences, both utilize Intel's excellent 975X chipset.

Asus's new series of Main Station motherboards are designed specifically for high-end computer and workstation users. With the release of this series, Asus is concentrating on providing additional storage options, improved cooling performance, and scalability for the business user.
