zipzoom is reputable. A little slower in shipping than the 'egg (just a day, maybe two longer before they ship out). But, good vendor.

The P5B was a spare board I had in case of calamities with my DFI (I got it from my gf... so I'd better use it somehow ). Then, I got an E6700, and decided to keep the E6600 and build a new rig with spare parts (and some borrowed parts from rig 1). In the coming months I will upgrade parts (still hoping for RD600), and the P5B will go back to its status as backup board.

I would choose the DS3, but if you want to get almost the same board , but $40 cheaper, get the Biostar Tforce P965. Almost the same and overclocks well too.

Since the DS3 is out of stock , you can save like 45 bucks by getting the S3 , they are exactly the same except for the fact that the capasitors are more solid on the DS3. So S3 ftw!

ya but the layout on that Tforce dosent look to good to me, i mean... why is the 24 pin connector right in the middle of the board? wont that cause more clutter and will get in the way of the cpu heat sink? but for 40$ cheaper and the same performace that dosent sound to bad, but that connector in the middle rely looks like it can become a pain in the butt

ZipZoomFly IMO doesnt hold a candle to Newegg. I had 2 DOA boards and they wouldnt even refund the full purchase price back.I got a board from Newegg that came DOA and they gave me the FULL purchase price + $7.00 in shipping credit.ZZF SUCKS IMO...Use the EGG you cant go wrong.
