g'day AFG, I dont know either...BUT at least it allows us to use the new AM3 architecture quad cores ...most of them anyway.

Including the quad core I am (hopefully) installing today along with a new super quiet PS fan from Noctua. And some more RAM.

I know I don't need the RAM, as Dom told me, BUT I ahve the spare sticks here at home so I thought, well, why not!!

From the list, there are only a few that don't work in the x-1394 edition.

But I would STILL rather have the 1394 as it has the firewire port, the others don't.

The FW port is great for an external firewire hard drive..even the FW 800!
