Um, no, Asus is a ton better than DFI.

DFI may look like a better overclocker on paper but Asus will overclock just as high while being a ton more stable and user friendly, I've used 3 DFI boards and 3 Asus counterparts to those and in every case Asus was best, that's why my Intel rig always gets Asus mobos.

Stability and rock solid performance? Get the infinity, but overclocking will most likely not be as abundant as it would on the LP versions.

Remonster has a point

First, with Core 2 Duo on the market, why goodby to Intel? Core 2 Duo beats anything AMD has to offer right now.

Having that said, there is only one DFI board for your CPU, and that's this one:

And I agree on Remoster on the ASUS boards. Better stability, and nearly as good overclockability.
Take a look at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131011

Also, that RAM won't work with that CPU. The CPU is AM2, and works only with DDR2 RAM

Well, it you got a AM2 DC 4000+ or 4400+ you could save some money because they should OC as well at the more expensiuve 5000+
BTW the 4000+ 4400+ & 4800+ have the big cache unlike the 5000+

Now, if you want to keep your memory, you need to pick socket 939, and then you have many more choices. YOU want SLI, Crossfire, or not?

one thing i think that ram is ddr so youll need to upgrade that also

on the asus boards ive had a bunch of them (about 5) and now im on my second dfi brand board and i know asus is built great and everything but i have had to mod my asus boards to do the same thing that the dfi did out of the box,
now ofcourse i havnt had a intel version since my p4pe deluxe or p4p800 (cant remember) so i am not sure of the settings the intel guys have

i would say if your going am2 go dfi but you may consider with a new build jsut going conroe since the performance will be much higher

but i will say if you go am2 go for the 4800 its like 250$ at newegg oem version and its supose to oc to 3.0 pretty easily and would prob be the best bang for buck in that route

i've had 3 lanparty boards, and they were all extremely stable, plus they have TONS of options in the BIOS.

This dfi im using now, is waaaay more stable than the asrock i had b4 it.

Ahhh, keeping the DDR RAM, nevermind about my AM2 CPU info if that is the case. 939 DC... either a 165 or 170 Opty readly available....or a 4400+ if you can find it.
