Thanks for the heads up. I wasn't looking for SLI or Crossfire for this system, and true surround sound isn't a big deal. I get so much RF interference with my 5.1 set that I've switched to an older 2.1 set until I can solve the RFI problem. With all of that considered, this board looked like a good choice. Thanks again.

Did you get this one with the 1000:1 contrast and 5ms response time?

The V3 has a 1000:1 contrast ratio. I can't see the black levels being too bad. In the end, if the black levels are bad, I won't really mind. Thanks though.

lol well I wasn't looking for SLI when I shopping around so I didn't even realize it didn't have it until I bought it.....but not a big deal at all, I don't plan on running SLI

Oh and IT DOES NOT have firewire. maybe it had it on your s3 but the ds3 r3.3 doesn't have it. Specs can be found here.
