Look into the DFI LanParty UT nF4 SLI-DR motherboard. It's a lot better.

why do you shove DFI in his face, is he going to OC maybe MSI K8N NEO4-F is a very good mild Ocer board and beginner board

alright
AMD is a fat big guy
Intel is a tall skinny guy
They are both in a brick carrying competition
AMD can carry more bricks than the intel guy but is slowly just a little
Intel cant carry as many bricks but is faster


AMD has a better way of "talking" to the other parts of your comp than Intel does. Intel Hyperthreading p4's are the only good cpu i can think of by them and thats for multitasking not gaming..
AMD dual cores are AMD's multitasking cpu's becasue games only use one core, not two

X800XT dont sound good cause the X8** series sucked so go with a 6800GT or 7800GT depends on whats your budget :O
