still DFI is more compatible with aMD than Asus, asus is for intel.

Go with the Ultra-D, you save money, and get better performance.

if you've heard good things about the AN8 32X, if you look for reviews you will hear GREAT things about the DFI Lanparty, almost everyon on this forum building a Gaming PC, has some idea of getting ASUS, then jumps right on over to DFI. The point is, DFI works better with AMD, if you want to take full advantage of your AMD CPU, get a DFI. IF you want to Impede the performance of your AMD get an ASUS.

Finally got round to ordering everything, it should all be here on monday/tuesday :drool:. Is there anything i should know when building(mistakes, common problems etc).
The main thing i think I may have a little problem with is when I first start-up(installing drivers etc)
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!
