In all we found both motherboards provide performance equal to what we would expect from I865 and I875 motherboards currently on the market. The fact that the LGA775 CPU is the processor of choice only increases its future compatibility as clock speeds ramp up.
ABIT has chosen the cheaper option of going with the I865PE chipset which has proven to be somewhat of the ultimate Pentium 4 chipset, with its own support for PAT-like functions, compatibility with ICH5 series Southbridge - it's hard to go past it. Added to this ABIT has given some interesting extras like Ethernet and Firewire support it does make a great choice, however, without any Gigabit Ethernet support it does give it a bit of a kick in the butt, as Gigabit is set to be the next home network standard.
On the overclocking side of things, ABIT brings a huge amount of power to the party, with the increased trace lines to the CPU from the voltage regulators it has a great potential for Prescott and Northwood CPU's the only thing missing is a better voltage range on the Northbridge/AGP side to give it a bit of extra boost.
DFI has gone the extra mile when it comes to its 875P-T Lanparty board with all the additional features that are supported by the Lanparty series of motherboards, and for the case modders and LAN addicts this motherboard and its package is definitely one for you to consider.
The overclocking state of this motherboard is slightly better than that of the ABIT AS8 due to a higher AGP/Northbridge voltage range, though a slightly higher price premium is paid for the extra features and the I875P chipset and Gigabit Ethernet chip. In all the DFI 875P-T is more of the motherboard you will want to invest in if you want LGA775 and keep your AGP graphics card and DDR memory.
