There are others, but they're more trouble than they're worth. If you don't want to go with the DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR version, then go with the DFI Lanparty nF4 Ultra-D.

I recommend the DFI boards, because they are some of the strongest, and tons of people have them, so any problems that you have, a lot of people will have solutions. My rig was also my first, but now I regret buying this Abit AV8 and I wish I'd spit out another $30 for a DFI Lanparty. It would've saved me a month of headaches. My beginning problems STILL haven't been solved
