Personally, I would take the EVGA board. I know it works, and I love it. The DFI is nice, and looks like it has the same fetures, but I would want to stick with one that I know works.

Agreed with celegorm. The EVGA board has won the customer choice award 4X times and that is pretty damn impressive. The reviews are also much better on the eVGA board. I don't know which is more powerful, but the A1 is the board I would get.

Well, the reason why I'm confused as to which one has better performance is because the EVGA excepts up to 1200MHz memory, but I've read in a couple of places an don EVGA's website that it only goes to that speed when your runnning SLI cards with SLI memory(which I don't even know what qualifies your memory to be SLI).

Here's the EVGA website link:

I'm going to vote DFI.

I havn't heard much about their board, but history shows that DFI boards when they come out are the best You'll want to obviously verify that before buying it though.
