nothing compares to DFI when it comes to overclocking. Trust me, NOTHING does. You are better off getting a DFI if you want to overclock and tweak everything.

but guess what, the Ultra-D (non-SLI) is moddable to SLI. Very easy to mod. Ask if you want a guide.

Im surprised as to how much ive learned about overclocking an A64 without even owning one. www.ocforums.com is the place to go about overclocking, lots of good info there. There are Mushkin, OCZ, Newegg representatives there incase you need to PM them or something. They are very very nice. BUT OF COURSE IM NOT SAYING DITCH THIS PLACE FOR THAT im just saying, that place is loaded with info about overclocking. Check it out sometime.

well, i know of a GREAT ocing board, but it doesnt have SLI. Look into the the EPoX EP-9NPA+Ultra. It is a fantastic board for the money. But if not having SLI will kill you, then i would really consider getting a DFI.
