ASUS P5ND2-SLI Deluxe is one of the first board out in the market and the word “Deluxe”

such as two-slot thermal design for better airflow between two cards running in
SLI mode, Native DDR2-720 support for higher memory performance and CrashFree
BIOS 2 that allows you to restore original BIOS when it gets corrupted.
