Ok, first the DFI lan party is not for everyone. Please get that into your heads. He has not mentioned any plans for overclocking, and the MSI neo 4 is a good board. It also costs about 50 dollars less than the DFI.

Also, besides overclocking, how is the DFI better? Does it make his computer run any faster? Will it give more frames in games, or improve his internet browsing time? Will it somehow magically increase his internet connection speed by a megabit?
The Lanparty Ultra-D is 5 bucks cheaper than the Neo4, so there's really no reason not to recommend it.

Regardless of whether he's overclocking or not, the lanparty has a lot more flexibility within the bios, and is a lot more user friendly with cmos reloaded and memtest86+ built into it.

I assume however based on his location it may be hard to come by which is why he isn't interested in it.

I'd rather have DDR550 2-3-3-8 than some crappy, non-reliable, non-overclockable, Value Crap...

Nforce 4 for the Neo-4 and Nforce 4 ultra for the Lan party. Thats a 50 dollar difference.

Also, 1 gig is better than 512, even if it is value.

Were talking about 1 gig versus 2x512mb. Obveously twice the memory is better...

The memory I'm getting is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16820145440.

And I'm not interested in a Lanparty is because they cost significantly more. And I don't trust refurbished ones.

• FedEx Standard Overnight — Delivery within 1 business day + 24-48 hours to process the order.
• No deliveries will be made on Saturday or Sunday if your order is shipped via FedEx.
• USPS — APO/FPO orders welcome! Delivery will take approximately 2 to 6 weeks + 24-48 hours to process the order. (Due to military APO/FPO box size, 19" and larger monitors cannot be shipped via this method; please remove them from your shopping cart before proceeding.)
• For HI and AK customers, FedEx can only ship via 2Day or Overnight, and the shipping time will not be guaranteed. Therefore, Newegg.com will default to and charge for 2Day air. Exact delivery times to HI, AK and PR cannot be guaranteed.
