DFI for overclocking, period.

The MSI will OC, but nowhere near the DFI.

Go for the ultra boards if you can spend more money.

DFI are great motherboard, dont get me wrong, but the only ones that strike me as ahead of the pack are the Lanparty series.

The MSI K8N Neo4's are GREAT value boards, the best valuve NF4 board in most people's eyes.

However my knowledge of the DAGF is limited, but it's not DFI's high end product, and their's a reason why it's never talked about.

DFI, I love mine... a lot, the sleek black PCB, the sexy yellows and oragnes-- Umm, what? yeah, go DFI, but if you can spare the cash, go with the LanParty, you will be glad you did.
