Ok guys im going with the bandwagon again im going to buy a new mobo so i can finally reach my goal of 3.0ghz with my opteron, now the question is which DFI mobo should i get? i have no plans in buying a new ram and hard drive.

Whats the difference between the ultra-d and expert? would both support my geil value ram pc-3200?

I have the money for a mobo, what i dont have is the extra upgrade that i will need to make this mobo work as i want it to. and so far i have seen issues with dfi expert thru dfistreets, and with my bad experience with the dfi nf3 mobo just dont wanna spend extra money on a mobo that will give me so much issues. I narrowed my choices to sli-dr and ultra-d question is this i've heard u have to use the orange slot for some RAMs, is this for all the dfi modo? or just the sli-dr expert? cuz the problem with using orange slot is im using xp120 so the first or initial orange slot is too close so chances are i wont be able to use that slot.

Hmmm thats odd cuz when i changed my venice to opteron never asked me to reactivate, however that had happnd to me before on my old dfi nf3 mobo. oh well my copy isnt bootleg anyways. so i wouldnt worry about it. i just need to be sure it will boot without reformat so i can save my files when i change mobos
