    I was gonna get the Gigabyte DS3 until I heard about it's memory issues. I'd like to see OcUK get the MSI 965 Platinum (I know the Neo is on site now but i'd rather get the platinum). Any suggestions for a 965 board?

    *edit - Or will the Corsair XMS2-6400C5 kit work with the Gigabyte?*

    Wait and get the ATI RD600 chipset boards when they come out.
    Else the Asus P5W DH if you got a chip to flash BIOS if it does not run the conroe out of the box.
