    hi there,

    building a PC very soon, but i'm undecided on the board of choice. these are the 4 of highlighted (what's the difference with the last two?),

    ASUS A8N32 SLi Deluxe NF4 SLI
    DFI LanParty NF4 SLI-DR
    DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D

    i'll be using a x-fi which i've read has had compatibility problems with dfi boards, and am also looking at corsair memory which again too seems to have compatibility problems which makes me lean towards the asus. but apparently the dfi's are better for overclockers? these are the other components i'm looking at,

    Opteron 165
    2GB (2X1GB) Corsair TwinX Pro LED, DDR PC3500LL
    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro
    512MB XFX 7900GTX

    Like I said i'm all for oc'ing, but if I need to change the memory (don't really wanna budge on the sound card), what options do i have?

    any advice would be great thanks
