However, Asus or DFI?<br />
<br />
Asus <a href="http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?l1=3&l2=15&l3=268&model=1042&modelmenu=1" target="_blank">http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?l...42&modelmenu=1</a><br />
<br />
DFI<br />

<br />
BTW: I would be getting the Asus for $90 while the DFI would be for $150

Does the Asus have as many options as DFI or at least sufficient for overclocking?

That ASUS has set records for the highest FSB. But not it wont have as many options as a DFI. Are you changing out the ram at all or keeping what you have?<br />
<br />
Drop those 256 sticks and just keep the gig.<br />

Ok so I should go with the Asus then, thank you both, but for the ram, on my current mobo I went to see the performance I could get out of not having the 2x 256 but the most I could squeze out is one second on super pi. I'll see if it makes a huge difference on the Asus.<br />
BTW- ram's running at 3-3-3-7 2t with 11 clocks at 209 MHz, that any good? Or could I get way better w/o the 2x 256?

Depends on the chips of the RAM. What's the model/manufacturer/chips?<br><br>
I'm getting the DFI board at the end of the year, it's only £75 over here (cheap for us taxed people - it used to be £150 - $280).<br><br>
The asus is £90 round abouts.<br><br>
(If I were you... I would save the money for a better graphics card or 2gb of ram..)

Being a proud owner of a CFX3200, I would recommend getting it. It hits very good HTT speeds (405 is the most I have gotten out of my Athlon 64 3500) and HT Link Bus speeds are rock solid stable at 1500 Mhz. Right now I am running stable at HTT of 375 with PC2700 ram. Here is a CPUZ screeny for you. But seriously, you will be thoroughly happy with the DFI.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/c/c6/c636c038_vbattach33282.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/c/c6/525x525px-LL-c636c038_vbattach33282.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:394px;"></a>
