Whats funny is the DS3R is being recommended just as the DS3 was months ago...

i really wouldnt get the 680i
and i own one so take my opion seriously. they are great o/cer's and grerat features etc.. its just not worth the extra cash. the ds3r o/c's better than the 680i or soo has been said and that alot cheaper get that and improve ur system for less.

hmmm I really should just do more research on the DSR3 but am running low on time. Anyone care to give me a run down of the different DS3/R models and their features/options/prices?

It should be:

P35-DS3R: Regular DS3R...DDR2...One PCIe x16 slot.
P35-DS3P: DDR2...Supports Crossfire w/ one PCIe x16, and a PCIe x 4
P35C-DS3R: DDR2 & DDR3...One PCIe x16 slot.

thanks for the clearup, Im actually doing mobo research on it right now since I got off work early. Hey Sora how come u didn't opt for the C version for DDR3 ram in the future? Is it worth it?

It's not worth looking into DDR3 yet. Their timings are very loose at the moment...and I hear boards supporting two types of RAM, have a little bug issue.
