I personally prefer the DFI board. But i'll have to recommend the Biostar t-Power i45 or the Gigabyte UD3P

I'd just get the UD3P unless you absolutely hate the way it looks. If so then get the ASUS out of those two

DFI never had one but cousin had one they are great overclockers. Love the color layout on this one.
Asus seems to have a better power grid though as it has the 16-Phase Power and the "Express Gate ~ 5 Secs from Bootup to Online". Now i really don't believe that though, 5 seconds is a bit far fetched in my book.
