In comparison, Asus has made it so that if the P5K(3) uses the second PCI-Express x16 slot at its x4 bandwidth instead of x1, then the other extra PCI-Express x1 lanes are disabled. This way it gives priority to the included PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet controllers. You’ll not notice any difference if you are running a 10/100 network, but if you have the infrastructure and rely on Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth, the PCI solution will come out slower, especially if you have a bunch of PCI devices too.

Oh & knocking the board for having few USB ports when it supports 12 (albeit 8 x header & " It wouldn’t matter so much if Abit had included another few USB ports provided on a PCI bracket." - they did ;)) ...

Abit in total include 6/12 usable USB ports out the box, which means you'll have to find yourself some other PCI brackets etc to use the rest of the ports.
About Abit warranty: I've just been chatting to the guy from Abit Taiwan this morning and apparently it might be different in the UK but the Abit manual, site and forums provide no definitive answer, just most say 3 years.

why do they only include 6 sata ports?
And then put 2 esata ports on?! Who uses esata?
They'd be far more useful just being normal sata, so you end up having 8 sata ports on board. All my optical and hard drives are sata - that's 7 devices in total.
