I've heard REALLY bad things about the DFI, but I would reccomend that you look up some reviews for the other boards, but STAY AWAY FROM THE DFI CF!!!
Oh, and the Saphire is also garbage, there are almost NO OCing options, not voltage options, AT ALL.

That's not true, the Sapphire has more voltage and overclocking options than any DFI motherboard on the market.

I'm not talking about the Sapphire pure, I'm talking about the other Sapphire CF, the PC-A9RD480.

You might have your models mixed up. This guy claims there's OC options out the wazzu and so did NCSA.

Theres a Adv version of the Sapphire and the non advanced. The non advanced ROCKS while the advanced is a piece of skum soaked in rotten manure. It has voltage options but these have proven to do NOTHING like with a multimeter and everything. Anyway i have the sapphire now and jesus is it bad. its impossible to get a amd 3700 oced past 220 core. Even if you have some UBER 133+ $2000 ram and everything it just doesent cut it. That leaves Abit/Asus i guess.

Ill probably get the Abit because i respect the brand and it comes with that cool Guru thing that you can use to clear the cmos and all. Unless someone changes my mind that is*

if you watch my posts, my pw5d2 premium thingo is on it's way with the 975x chipset, i only have 1 x1900xt but i will crossfire it once this board is up and working, need to buy RAM first before second GPU, but I'm very interested to see how this all runs..

Yeah, I was thinking about the Adv, not the Pure. The Pure is supposed to kick ass, where as the Adv isn't even worthy of being produced.
