well that new asus board oc's just as well as the DFI, and has the X16 pci e slots which give you a little boost if you were to SLI. but whichever you choose, im sure you'll be happy with it.

Parts are coming on Monday for my build though I am having last second thoughts on the Mobo so I haven't ordered that yet. What in your opinion is better people have been recommending the ASUS board to me but it has less PCI-Type slots in general and has two less rear panel USB ports. I origanally planned on a DFI.

ASUS A8N32
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
