Epox Tech? Any difference in 8rda+ vs 8rga+ except graphics?

Are there any other notable differences between the 8rDa+ and the 8rGa+ Fnorce2 boards except on board graphics? Also, what will designate the Raid versions of these boards since the pics below are +'s, but don't seem to have Raid connectors.

So long as the onboard audio is the same, I am happy....

+ means added feature not raid.

Neither Nforce board you have mentioned will have onboard ATA raid. I think most people will be thinking serial ATA raid pretty soon anyway (be it on board on via a PCI adaptor)

The 8rga+ will have the full Nforce2 feature set im not sure on the spec of the 8rda+ as it has not been officially announced yet, ill ask ET in the morning if I remembe.

I heard 8RGA+ is gonna have dual head graphics, firewire, usb2.0, smart card, the kitchen sink, and a partridge in a pear tree for features. Should be a sweet board. I hope it's priced reasonably, and I hope it has the overclocking features my heart desires. If it meets my needs and wants list, I think I may purchase one and plop a 2400+ in it later this autumn . . .

Then later, around Christmas, add a serial ATA RAID 0 array via PCI adapter . . .

Spec for the 8rga+ is on the website, search for nforce2 at www.epox.org.
It will have all the bells and whistles including dual head, dual lan, firewire, 6 channel dolby sound USB-2 and so on....

8RDA+ will have C18D northbridge, and MCP2a southbridge and hence reduced multimedia capability including just Realtek 6 channel audio rather than Dolby P & T.

This mainboards focus market is moore for those that will equip it with a GeForce Ti card, SB Audigy etc., whereas the 8RGA+ is more for those that want to use the boards integrated feature set.
