By all means, go with DFI...if you are just going with one vid card, get the Ultra-D, if SLI get the SLI-DR, you wont be sorry...I run my 3700 at 2915 on air...idle,31c load 42 c

Probably not as good, because the DFI gives the most options when it comes to overclocking, it reeeeeeallly narrows things down and everything is simple to understand.

DFI simply takes the cake when it comes to overclocking. I'm running a DFI Ultra-D right now with an AMD64 X2 3800+ and 2GB of RAM, this board with the right BIOS will do anything you want.
