I'd go with the 3.0E. ASUS and ABIT are both hi-quality MoBo makers, and with a 800 MHz FSB and HT, you can get much more than a single 2.8 Prescott (which, iIrc, is @ a FSB of 400/533 MHz and no HT) for only $18 more.

I'd say there's so little difference between the procs that i'd be buying based on mobo features..
THe ASUS says DELUXE.. does that mena it has more 'stuff' than the ABIT??
