ASUS A8N-SLI Premium - http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ASUS

from everything i've heard the DFI boards are quite nice and can handle huge overclocks. now i dunno what that second DFI board is, but its the same name as teh first one but longer so i figure should be better but who knows. I'm using the MSI NEO 4 PLATINUM SLI board and its quite nice too may wanna look at that...do u plan on alot of O/Cing with your computer? or are you looking for a pretty good o/cing board thats very stable and nicely priced too? the DFI is mainly for o/cing people who want to say "look at me for no reason whatsoever i o/ced my computer so now i get 600fps instead of 579" my board o/c nicely unless your an extremist and i've had no problems yet, plus comes with SB LIVE! 7.1 onboard :O

go with the Expert version of the DFI SLI-DR. They fixed a couple of bugs in the original version, removed the 4V RAM jumper (it has been known to kill mobos and sometimes RAM). They changed the layout of the board so it has better cooling.

Ok I just want to know if Sata 3.0kb/s is the same as SATA 2? I think I may want to go with the expert.
