It's an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe.
Data (mostly guessed or searched on the web):
Northbridge: NVIDIA nForce4 SLI
Southbridge: NVIDIA CK804 (says lspci) / NVIDIA nForce4 SLI (says the doc)
Socket 939
Award 4Mb Flash EEPROM
Supports Athlon 64; Athlon 64 FX; Opteron 1xx for Socket 939

I hope you can find some more usable information at

The things making this motherboard attractive for me:
- 8 SATA ports
- 4 PCIe slots
- 4 MB Flash EEPROM (should be big enough for LinuxBIOS)
- 2 GBit LAN ports

The PCIe slots are most important because I plan to build some
routers with half a dozen gigabit interfaces each and using PCI
would severely limit performance.
