Well it's between the GA-K8NXP-9 DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D

http://www.dfi.com.tw/Product/...ct_s...TYPE=LP&SITE=US' ">http://www.dfi.com.tw/Product/...TEGORY_TYPE=LP&SITE=US

Now from what I have been reading the GA-K8NXP-9 not the best overclocker and the dfi one is the GA-K8NXP-9 is stable but doesn't overclock much and the DFI is a good overclocker but can be a pain to set up and get stable but once it is its a very good motherboard. Eekk I'm not sure which way to go now lol

now with getting rid of the A8V would it be easy to just sell the mobo? or make up a 2nd pc useing it and say buy 3200+ cpu, I have a spare stick of corsair cas2 ram spare psu and the 9800pro would also be used in it + spare 40gig hd so not to much to buy with this set up what would I be able to get for it ?
