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.

well, i wanted sli to kinda future-proof myself. cuz if i build a system, i'd get a 6600gt with it. and when that gets old(or when i get more money), i'd get another one and sli it. but i'll look into that other board. thanks

I believe this is the most powerful motherboard in regards to the video subsystem in which it utilize full bandwidth on both PCI-e channels. Very expensive might I add. Close to $250!!!!!!!!

ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131568

I think it's the only motherboard that offers that feature with full 16x on both graphic slots.

This is another good motherboard with nice OC features:

ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131517

It's close to $100 cheaper than the one I pointed out before and still has SLi feature.

I've had a lot of luck with ABIT boards with regards to overclocking. That was an Athlon XP board, though, but they might be worth checking.

Yes, i have to agree, CJ, ABIT's NF7-S2 was top of the line back in the AXP days, but now, cutting corners and not overclocking features, i would stay away from them.

I use an Asrock dual P4 880 pro, and Ive got to say its pretty good for o/cing. I understand (I think) that asrock is supposed to suck for ocing, but this is a fairly newly brought out board, and its pretty sweet. Looks nice as well, bright blue lol.
