I meant to purchase the full format rather than the LE, but there are actually some benefits to the LE. For starters, it screams. Great performance and I'm really impressed. I was able to purchase just the MB and RAM to max it out.
Reused my CPU and drives. I was having some performance issues with my old system. It only supported USB2.0. The ASUS was noticably faster and more reliable. After updating the drivers, everything worked perfectly without having to reinstall (or repurchase) Windows 7 itself. After installing the network drivers, everything but audio was simply recognized and downloaded. Even the audio was simple to get going.
All my other cards (TV, and high end graphics) came right up worked immediately from the drivers previously installed.
Performance was the most noticeable thing that changed. With the same processor, the performance factor was unbelievable improved. Don't know what's so different, but I'm impressed.
