dude... there is no such thing as a Extreme gaming mobos... Mobos do NOT determine the performance... u may see half a fps difference..

You did not even say what kind of CPU.. Il suppose ur tlaking about a 939:
Abit av8 3rd eye
asus a8v pro deluxe

You might want to check out the PCIe mobos. Also DFI has or is comming real soon with their nf4 mobo.

ill try not to get into an amd vs intel war but..
obviously a 3.2 P4 is going to run d3 well but for the price AMD can run the game equally at a much lower price. However the new fx and 939 series amd's totally own intel.
