If you are going to choose Asus then take the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium

 

but you may want to look at some other brands like MSI or Gigabyte, it is started to well known that Asus has really started to go downhill with reliability just keep that in mind.

Stick with the Asus if you can. Gigabyte does make good Socket 939 boards, but avoid the SLI versions if you can. MSI is starting to axe Socket 939 production as their current board is the Neo4 SLI-FI. I can't find the Platinum's anymore. :huh:

whaaa. i would get the dfi. if you dont know what it is dont touch it, just learn how to oc and youll be ok. also for dfi i believe you would want the expert or the sli-dr, dont take my word for it but just look around. i havent been keeping updated on the newest model of dfi.

And it can even be modded to SLI :D

Be careful with that. I've heard many people say that the newer Ultra-D's cannot be modded to SLI.

Newer as in something other then the contacts being epoxied? Cause if it's just the epoxy mine had it and it was no trouble just taped off everything except those pins and sanded down the epoxy then used some circuit writer. If it's something new then thats news to me.

The news isn't new. Nvidia removed the physical contacts on the nForce4 Ultra so that you can't mod the chip.
