well, when i built my computer last november, i thought that tTHIS was a great deal. at the time, it was 100$ and all other core2 boards were quite expensive, and i wanted features.

so anyway, this board only offers pci-e 8x (cant just set 1pci-e x16, stays in 2pci-e 8x cause or chipset..) and it SUCKS at overclocking. basically, i was wondering if it would be worth it to shell out another 100$ for the ds3 so i'd get a better overclock (and im not really planning on using SLi..)

thanks
