yeah the lanparty series is all pretty much the same...the expert is supposedly the better board but it has a repution of killing off hardware...there's a poll on xtremesystems and last I checked about 25 incidents occured on the expert of almost immediately dead parts after months of use in the other lanparties

Dunno why you're going through so much trouble to get stuff though, places like are fine for shopping and I'd only order from the states if there was something impossible to get here like G.Skill memory

Yea i'd stick with the Ultra-D. The last thing you want to happen is your mobo crapping out on you, and taking your other parts down with it.
