Anyone heard of this? I heard that it can give 3.2 vdimm and is a decent ocer. Any problems with this board?

nForce does better with 939, that one runs off of the VIA chipset.

DFI boards are better, but quite more expensive

Well...

I did have some I will have too look. I just know that the nForce 3 Ultra and nForce 4 are chosen by gamers for more performance than the VIA chipsets.

Performance in directX9 games doesn't vary much between nf4 and via, but the via chipset obviously is lacking in some other areas. Obviously, this isn't the abit board, but same chipset.
