He meant that a DFI can be a pain in the rear end. They're very nice boards, but take time to tweak and can be very picky towards parts/bios combos.

the Opteron 165 OC'es to .3ghz over the stock speeds of the 4400+(both OC to about 2.7, kind of lame for the X2) , and is made of better silicon that can handle stress better than any other proc, i suggest the opteron most definately,

the 165 is a good OCer but try the 4400+, i have one and it is a pretty good OCer. Also, try a asus mobo, teh are reliable and have pretty good performance all around. I have the A8N-sli premium, but the A8N32-sli deluxe is good if you can afford it and if you dont have too many pci cards. The BIOS is awesome and gives nice configurability for overclocking. Also, make sure ur going with a good memory since they can be a pretty bad bottleneck if not good.

BTW, both MBs are fiine! The DFI is a bit more demanding to OC than the Asus!
agree with his statement on the 7800GT. i think the part number is N517 or N518. it's also designated by CO at the end.
