Get this one:

The only difference between that one and the SLI-DR is that the DR has 4 more SATA ports. And, I asked the same question you did about 10 hours ago so you should have just checked my thread labeled which DFI board.

I would have to say the Expert. I'd also suggest not getting the OZC as I have heard they have problems with DFI boards. If you can go with out one gtx for now or find some extra cash, an x24400+ or Opteron 170 will do you better as they have the 1mb l2 cache on them.

OCZ is fine. They do sometimes have problems, but with a little troubleshooting it can work....and when it does you will be happy. Get the OCZ DDR4000 VX. It is great once you can get the voltage up on the board. I agree with everyone about the Expert. Everything on that board is much better then the older boards.
