If your going SLI looks good to me.

Don't go with a DFI board if they tell you to, they have been CPU killers lately.

They fry your CPU which, if your mobo is working correctly would not happen becauseonce your CPU reaches a certain temperature it would shut down.

Only the DFI expert board. If you get ASUS, get the AN832. If you cant afford that, the DFI SLI-D. The AN832 is the only good amd board ASUS makes, but it's not just good, it's REALLY good. I mean like REALLY REALLY good. But it also costs over $200

If there have been problems they are small problems of people not setting them up correctly. And like everything out there, you run the risk of getting something defective. The ultra-d is a tried and true board that many people are using its working well for them. There might be small problems with the ultra-d but nothing like the expert and frying cpus.

I currently got a DFI ultra-d for 135$USD it works almost perfectly...The fan got in the way of the video card, i had to move it a bit higher. For the $ it's deffinetly worth it.
