Hacp, I think what they're trying to say is "there is better out there".

Yeah, I've been sold on the DFI board, it looks amazing, but I s'pose for $190, you get what you pay for.

I've never OC-ed before, but I'd like to get into that this time around. I was going to try OC-ing my setup now, but I have that ****ty Gigabyte board, did some searching, and I can probably OC only about 5%. Plus my parts probably aren't up to the challenge, but since they're 3 years old, I'm sure I could replace them for practically pennies. I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows, that cleaned things up a lot, so it seems to run faster, but I'd still like some new stuff.

Chris, do you have LP nF4 SLI-DR? When'd you get your TwinMOS too?

Was looking around on Newegg again, saw a cheap case that got some alright reviews - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811117029

What do you guys think? Also, I was looking at the Leadtek 6800GT and it looks like the only motherboard that will fit 2 for SLI is the Asus A8N boards, so that kind of sets off a red flag in my mind 'cause I'm spending the extra money for the SLI board but 6600GTs in SLI sounded like a bad idea to everyone, but now if I wanted to get another 6800GT later, the Leadtek ones don't look so promising. Guess I'm a little stumped, *shrug*
