  1. I found a deal on a HIS X1800GTO IceQ3 Turbo 256MB DDR3/PCI-E/AVIVO/Dual-DVI-DL at Monarch that I couldn't refuse $180 after rebate so it looks like the DFI will have to wait till Xmas.

    it should be able to perform well depending on stepping.
    How do I determine what the stepping is and whether it is good or not?
    Hi. I had the same mobo as you. Having it die on me was the best thing that ever happened to me
    Did it just quit, how did you determine it was thw MBO. My system is acting up some and I don't know for what it is?

  2. Thank you for the warm weclcome.

    That said, if your current OC is prime 95 24hr stable, I really don't think you'll see that much improvement. It will likley be better, but not really so much to justify over $100 in a new board.
    No it's not, I had to back it down because of reboots.
    You might consider a better PSU - say the OCZ gamer 600W at least (much favored by those here) - even with the MSI.
    I just bought this one, read lots of reviews and thought it was a good one. What is wrong with it (just curious)?
    Welcome, and hope you do join our ranks soon!
    Thank you.:)
    And another help guide is this thread : http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20823
    Just what I need, thanks.

    What would be the better board DFI NF4 Ultra Infinity or the Ultra-D? I don't need a SLI board.

  3. Hey bchivers and welcome to the " street ".

    a DFI board will give u much higher overclock and tweaking opportunitys

    And you will be much more comfortable with a DFI board :)

    That was quick, thanks. Much higher OC's what would a wild wild guess be? I am knew to OC'ing how does a motherboard make a difference? I will spend up to $150 for a board is there another I should consider (other than the Ultra-D)? I don't need SLI. Thanks.

  4. Not trying to be smart, I have a MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Ultra nForce4 and am thinking of upgrading. I have been looking at the Ultra-D. What will this board do that the MSI board can't? Would this be a worth while upgrade? Please try to put your bias aside, I know you are all DFI fans here and possibly I will be soon. TIA
