Not many places are selling guaranteed I-stepping...but SVC.com typically has a plethora of mobiles in stock (2400-2600's)

I'd say go with the DFI Ultra Infinity, doesnt cost as much as the lanparty, and has all the bells and whistles...

the NF7-s2 is also excellent.

I agree with Xavier, if you have the cash, get the DFI Ultra Infinity. Otherwise, get the Abit NF7-S v2.0 (NOTE - make sure its the v2.0 version).

Either board your not going to be dissapointed.

I prefer DFI myself since I had 2 NF7-S V2.0 which I put in a PC I was building for a mate and both went BANG
.

Probabley my bad luck so I have stuck with DFI in my own RIGS... I dont mind the extra money spent because I know I am getting a decent product that is supported well by DFI and supported even better by DFI users at DFI Street.

Another bonus is some of the guys work for DFI so you get first hand technical experiance from them.

I have not seen this with the Abit boards.

Same as everyone else...although an Intel guy, I had the same decision, Abit (AI7) or DFI. Since I was looking at $60 difference and this is my first OC I went for the Abit and have had no problems. The uGuru feature quite honestly is still buggy so I just don't bother with it. I run MBM5 and do everything through BIOS...XP boots so fast it's not a big deal.

I had the nf7-s v2 and I've also messed with friends computer that has a dfi. His computer didnt overclock much higher than my old xp-mobile setup but he was able to get alot higher FSB, without having to do any mods while my Abit Nf7-s got buggy around 225fsb.

I was sitting @ 212FSBx12, while he is doing 240FSBx11. Both are great boards, and I doubt you'd be dissapointed if you go with either one.

yes you certinaly need to use a cracked bios or hardmod to get the most of the NF7-S tictacs Bios' rock for such purposes
