Ok well as most of you know im planning to build a new AMD 64 based syatem equipped with an x800XL. Well my question is this... Should i buy a DFI LP NF4 ULTRA-D? Or should i wait for the crossfire edition LP board from DFI?

I dont plan to use xfire(yeah yeah i know but its shorter) right off but closer to around a year from now, also if i do wait for the DFI xfire edition i might be able to get an x850 series.(cause im thinking the fudo will be avail about the time the mobo's and xfire cards will be released)

So, what do u all think? wait and get the xfire? or stick to my current plan? oh and were not talking $$$ either.

I'd say wait....but depending on your current system. If it does everything you need it too, but just a bit slower than you want, I'd say get the xFIRE (i know too, but lets make the nickname look like that) board. xFIRE is far superior to SLI, and, if you said you might be able to get the x850....it would really be worth it.

heres what my old system compared to my new is:

P4 2.4ghz 512k L2 Woody ~ AMD athlon 64 3200+ Venice
Asus p4t533-c ~ DFI Lanparty Xfire edition(watever the names gonna be)
Samsung 512mb PC800 RDRAM ~ OCZ 1gb 3200 VX
Leadtek GF 4400 ~ X800Xl or X850 XT/PT w/e(Xfire comes later on)
A+ 500w(never agin) ~ Tagan 480w
Lian Li PC-60(never agin) ~ Kingwin KT-424-WM-BK
Zalman 7000a-CU ~ not sure of ima replace with a better one yet or not...
WD Caviar SE 200gb ~ 2x Seagate/Hitachi/WD 160gb SATA

anyhow its gonna be like 500% better then what i have now /wub.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wub.gif' />

Dell 15" ~ either LCD or CRT 19" woot!

maginus why did you say never again with Lian-Li? they make some of the absolute best cases in the world but they are too expencive for my blood, the wavemaster was expencive but ive wanted a wavemaster since they came out so i got it.

i still think that $200 for a case is far too ridiculous... unless that's what i'd win a day of work!
those choices look extremly well magnius...

well its a nice case design... just a few problems iv had have made me iffy, along with the price i got mine for 120 i think. But this is my first case like this, and im comparing it to the similar series of coolermaster. Which i have seen all firsthand and this is honestly a [content edited] case compared to that for about the same price range.
