Ok, first of all, money for toys is kind of tight and I presently have a DFI DK X48 T2RSB+ which is a great board and overclocks easily (for a DFI board anyway) and very well. Still sells for $169 at The Egg which is $10 more than I paid on sale in April. However, now that prices have dropped well below $200 on their highest end UT X48 boards I find my eye on them. Mainly because I like having different hardware to play with and also because I kind of hate the UV orange on my board as opposed to the green on the UTs. Also, the custom Thermalright cooling on the board is really nice, both from a looks and performance standpoint. But now I cannot decide between the UT T2R or the T3R (DDR2 vs DDR3). If I didn't already own a set of DDR3 then it would be a no brainer, but I do from when I had a Black Ops and havent resold as yet. But the T3R would cost me $50 more. And I'm also not in love with the layout as slots 1 + 3 are the 16x (but this is not a "show stopper" as they include a long crossfire bridge and I only have a single card at present anyway which probably won't change anytime soon). Lastly, I am primarily a gamer and don't do a ton of memory bandwidth-intensive tasks. Based on all that it seems I should just go the cheaper and probably easier route and get the DDR2 board but also moving to DDR3 generally seems more worth all this effort of a new mobo. Otherwise it seems like I am swapping primarily due to aesthetics which doesn't quite sit right, you know?
