- DFI's LANParty 925X-T2 and UT 915P-T12 motherboards

Arguably the most refined and feature rich Intel 915P and 925X based motherboards on the market would be those of the LANParty range from DFI. If you're keen to make the switch to LGA775 and PCIe you couldnt go far wrong basing your machine on either of these gems. The Tech Report have trialed both the 925X-T2 and 915P-T12 LANParty boards to give you an indication of the treat you'd be in for with either.

SINCE MY OFFICE IS always filled with test systems and extra hardware, it's become a popular locale for almost-weekly LAN parties. Although the room's small size and pesky wiring limits sessions to four or five systems, we'll trash talk into the wee hours playing a variety of games. Among my geekiest of acquaintances, the LAN party has become the equivalent of a poker night. Instead of betting chips and inhaling stogies, we frantically hammer mouse buttons and seek sustenance from sushi and caffeine.

Nearly a year and a half ago, DFI tried to capitalize on the popularity of LAN parties by introducing the LANParty line of motherboards targeted at gamers and enthusiasts. With high-performance chipsets, plenty of integrated peripherals, a unique look, and loads of bundled extras, the LANParty boards were perfect for those looking to show off at the next geeky gathering.
