Default Nubius, any word on the DFI nForce3 939?

Hey man, have you heard anything more about the DFI AGP 939 board? You somehow seem to know all this info, and I couldn't find anything online. I'm really wanting to get a Venice soon, and don't know if I should wait for DFI or get the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum.

If you're going to be overclocking i'd recommend a few gigabytes over the neo2 if you decide to go that route.

k8ns-ultra
k8ns-pro (cheaper version)
k8nf-9
or the k8nsxp

That's the board I'm talking about. I'm glad to hear it's coming out soon though.

Late june early july was the last I've heard anything about it....I'm probably gonna buy my venice at the beginning of june, and then see how things play out.....if worst comes to worst guess I'm going to have to sell off the 6800GT or something.

Senseless - gigabyte sucks dude, the MSI Neo2 is currently recognized as the best nf3 socket 939 agp OC'ing board out there.

I've used a lot of neo 2s (i've built 50ish systems with them) and a lot of gigabyte (80-100ish systems).. In all my tests i got better results for overclocks on the k8ns-ultra.
