    I think I have narrowed down my mobo to these two:

    Asus P5Q-E or the DFI DK p45?

    Any thoughts on what I might be getting extra by going with Asus vs DFI? Any losses? The prices are relatively close so I just need to decide.

    I'll be putting a nice e8x00 with a couple of 4850's. I'm looking to rock a nasty CPU overclock so both will be pretty nice. Any thoughts?

    Your title confuses me a little, did you mean the P5Q-E or the P5E, which are 2 different boards.

    Something I have noticed after peeking at a couple of reviews on the P5Q series boards, overclocking them can be a touch difficult (I know first hand having a P5Q3 Deluxe), but DFI has a reputation for having a complicated BIOS no matter which board you get. The upside is both should be excellet boards, and I know one user on here has a P5Q-E and has gotten some amazing speeds with a couple of different CPU's. I have not seen any reviews of the DFI so I cannot be sure of its exact performance.
    mlee49 says thanks.
