yeah both mb seems very good but i want a more future proof mb but there is not such thing in the computing world is there...

in overclocking terms i hear the dfi is greater as it has many OC options so i can squeeze out more performance, when it starts to lag.
but i also hear that the asus is not far behind the dfi and in some performacnce it beats the dfi.

but i ve read in the forum, for a dual core, that the asus limits my vcore to only 1.55v, as im thinking of getting the system to OC as much as poss. with water cooling im sure i can go over to a higher vcore and get better OC results.
or is there not much difference?

btw if i were to get it watercooled any suggestion on a set up? under £150 if possible

ok i have decideed on the dfi lanparty sli dr expert board
i know it needs a 8 pin connector and a 24 pin connector

can any one recommend a good PSU but i dont really wanna spend over £100
ive seen the enermax noisetaker 600W for about £93
or maybe the seasonic s12 600
anyone find a cheaper realiable one
and will the two above fit my dfi expert?
