Hey would this be a good board to get for a first time builder, I was reading some reviews on Newegg the the DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D was not for first time builders, and was wondering if this is the same case for this board?

Its just as good as any board for 1st time builders. its when u go to overclock that u get way more options than any other board. newbies might be a little overwhelmed

Pretty much

Great, now I got all these people riding bets on me! I can't lose!

Lets just hope I got a good CPU and the board lives up to the DFI name.

Apparently it was a 5.4 in Eucypa I think it's spelled which is about 60 miles from here.....earthquakes just feel...odd....lol, can't even describe it...it just feels freaking weird to feel everything rumbling around you, I can't even imagine the big *** 8.0's in china and how those most have felt.

I've got a 3GHz 300MHz target set and I don't think I'll expect anything less...yeah yeah I was thinking 2800MHz on a 1:1 ratio but I'm too damn greedy.

Sabaku Kyuu will own you, mwahahahaha you haven't even gotten that far to know it's ownage. No wait! After the little earthquake I think Sabaku Taiso is more appropriate.
