I've heard so many bad things about DFI boards, especially the lanparty ones, shotty drivers and poor compatabilities... I wouldn't trust DFI.

Now i wouldnt say that about DFI, there a trusted brand and are a proven OCing board.. What the major downfal of the board is the "non beginner friendly" aspect of the motherboard. It is made for bigtime tweakers and OCers, and if it falls into the hands of an inexperienced person, well issues happen. For a first build, i would say avoid it, and upgrade later, a alternative could be a MSI or Asus boards (great entry boards!)

you cant use ddr2 with an amd cpu. ad i agree with wowza about dfi, they are just not necessary for 99% of all computer owners, only for the experienced or very determined. my msi is decent a a much better price, asus from what i hear is very good as well. and ive never heard of a "venice" 3800, but i may be dense.
