Best OCing MicroATX board ever made, with dual PCI-E 2.0 slots, 4 DDR2 800 Slots, and Onboard RAID. You'll need some extra cash, but it is by far the best MicroATX board you can get for AMD. Save your money for a little bit and do this, you won't regret it. You could probably sell your current board to recoup some of the losses, or maybe even all.
I agree. DFI has always made killer mobos

I say deal with what you have, sell your board, get some Christmas money, and buy the DFI. It will completely be worth it.

Yes DFI makes good boards, but I dont think this is the one for him. 1 for the price he could get something better,(not in micro) 2 its a crossfire board, 3 hes got an 8800, I dont think its worth it for him to get this board. He should stick with a single slot video solution.
That Gigabyte board is decent, in his price range, and AM3 compatible.

This is what I got , it is an awesome deal! Do not get that other AM2 that you listed. If anything spend 90$ on the 6400+

The 780G/SB700 chipset is an excellent overclocker. Got the 4400+ X2 in my parents computer I built them to 3.00 GHz with very little tweaking on a GA-MA78GM-S2H. Gigabyte is very good about releasing BIOS updates to support later processors as well. If you're not looking for a multi-card solution, you really can't go wrong here.

I think I'm going to go with that Gigabyte unless anyone else thinks theres a better one for about that price? (That DFI is awesome but not for me)

And supposedly the 7750 is a 3 core with 1 core deactivated, and the L2 only has 2x512, and the L3 has 2x1mb.
i am gonna disagree with you. for the simple reason is the k10(phenoms) are faster than the k8's. a k10 at 2.7 is ruffly as fast as a k8 at 3.0.

go with the 7750 or 8450. i had my 8450 up to 2.6 and it kep up with my 6000+(3.0) cpu no problem.

as for mother board that giga byte is a decent board. i reccomend one with a 790 chipset and a 750 south bridge if its in the price range. 2 reasons. 1 execllent ocer's. 2 able to support am3 if you decide to upgrade in the future.
good luck.
