yeah, i have heard those are great. BUT i've also read that they have a few bugs (in the bios, maybe?). or maybe it was the 590 chipset. i can't remember. but this one is definitely an option. but price...ouch!

wasnt the major flaw in nforce 590 boards the lack of strong stable overcloocking?

i know that fatalities are a little overpriced but aren't they supposed to be very good overclockers?

DFI man! You can't go wrong with DFI mobo's!
Im saying this since i have a DFI board and it's a killer OCer!

Not so sure if it comes in the am2 socket though, check their site!

i believe dfi does make an am2 board. i think i have read something about it somewhere, i think on an overclocking website, but they could have been talking about the 939 socket...
i also read this article about a foxconn (sp?) board...anybody know anything about them?
