They are both good clocking mobos but the DFI has tons more overclocking options as well as a few features that make it more future proof (PCI-E 2.0 and such).

Get this one instead. It has the silentpipe cooling for the NB rather than the huge upright cooler. All of the reviews i have read say that the cooler that comes with the LT make using a big aftermarket cpu cooler almost impossible.

Yes i spent most of my day yesterday researching DFI boards because i plan on going crossfire
