I bought my first DFI board, the RDX200CF-DR, which is mentioned in the OP's quote, for £44 delivered.
I read the horror stories on Newegg about major and fundemental problems with the board, but for the price I decided that it was well worth the risk and if I had any problems I could get an RMA or a refund and go back to using my Abit AX8.
I've got a Revision A03 board - this seems to be the least buggy of the boards, but also says something; the fact that DFI needed 3 revisions of the board before they could get one working.
However, all credit to DFI - it is an awesome board. There are hundreds of tweaks, more features than I'll need, and I've got my 3000+ to 2.45ghz easily. The board itself has been perfectly stable, and I've played 23 hours of BF2 fine, and never had a dodgy POST unlike with my AX8.
There are bads points though. For some unknown reason driver install of my sound module fails, which has led me to grabbing a Sound Blaster Live!. The board hated my TwinMOS Dual Channel stuff, and would crash instantly in games until the timings were loosened - however, I wanted to upgrade my RAM at some point anyway and having just got a new job I bought 1GB of G.Skill HZ, another to follow soon. Fitting the RAM was anything but easy - I would estimate it took me half an hour, with the board refusing to boot, freezing on POST, until it finally worked after multiplie CMOS clears and changing of slots and its been working fine ever since.
TBH, I got much more than I paid for - a DFI Crossfire Socket 939 board for £44 delivered, new??? I'm happy, and I hope that DFI keep DFI-Street thanks to all the help they have given me.
In the UK, we have Bulldog as our rep, and he is excellent - he has walked me through every step of installing and picking new RAM, so all credit to him
