Final Words

After reading this review I'm sure most of you are wondering when this motherboard will be available and at what price. What we know for certain is that the ASUS P4C800 Deluxe is in mass production now, and has in fact already trickled into the U.S. retail channel. In other words, you should be able to purchase the P4C800 Deluxe in the U.S. any day now, while most of the rest of the world may have to wait another few days to a week or so. This motherboard isn't exactly cheap at a suggested selling price of $199, but it's not really all that expensive compared to other 875P motherboards, and certainly better than any $199 desktop motherboard not based on the 875P chipset. This price is actually quite attractive for what you're getting, and will only fall in the coming weeks/months.

By now you've probably already concluded that as a high-performance desktop motherboard the ASUS P4C800 Deluxe is undeniably impressive. The features, performance, and price point the ASUS P4C800 Deluxe offers are hard to beat in its class, so you will certainly want to consider this motherboard before you go out and build that high-end Pentium 4 system, that much is certain. Many other motherboard makers have their 875P solutions ready to go, the only question you need answered is whether the ASUS P4C800 is the best value for your high-end Pentium 4 desktop system. Hopefully we'll have answered that question as we go through more 875P motherboards in the next few days. Until then stay tuned for more news and reviews of 875P and eventually 865 motherboards soon...
