Is it worth buying the Venus over any of the other DFI boards?

New to DFI

Money not an issue so please do not qoute price.

 

Is it an updated Expert with a lot of the issues resolved?

 

thanks

Hardest thing will be GETTING one! :drool:

Do a search for "venus" - there is a link to DFI with the specs and a few places where someone has the board.

 

My guess on price - Start with the Expert at $200.

Add $100 for fancy box.

Add $100 for "hand built" and all solid state caps.

Add $100 for "Limited Edition" only 1000 made worldwide.

Add $100 for Dealer mark-up (look at what happened to Opteron prices!) :mad:

 

Pay something like $600.

 

On the up side, let the feeding frenzy hit a peak.

Go to Ebay and sell for $2000 to some kid whos dad just bought him his second Ford GT. :P

 

Take the money and buy an Expert, Opty, PC Power & Cooling 1K PSU, etc, etc. :nod:

 

Or get an Ultra D, hand picked lucky chip - and embarse me! :sad:

Well, gone and done it. :D

Ordered one.

It is on pre order, due in on march the 6th.

£220 :sweat:

Got to get the rest of my kit togeather now lol.

 

Not easy to get the OCZ psu's where I live so I was thinking of perhaps the Enermax 600, any comments?

going to pair it up with the G.Skill 2GB HZ as well I think.

Decided the enermax would be no good because it does not have an 8 pin EPS.

maybe the FSP Epsilon 600W.

Or should I try to get the OCZ 520W to be sure.

Will the Venus have a cold boot issue, will the Venus be picky about which PSU it likes???

Who knows??? lol.

:sweat:
