There is also the MSI platinum which is selling for $119 on newegg. It is a very good overclocker from what I have seen and has two pcie 16 ports.
It's not a bad board, BUT...
The main PCI-E uses 16 lanes and the 2nd PCI-E only has 4 lanes running thru the southbridge. This is a typical kludge for 2 slot 965 based boards. If ATI crossfire is important to you then get a 975 based board and pay lots more. If SLI is important to you then get an NVidia 680 based board and pay lots more. If neither is important then just get a single PCI-E slot board with a 965 chipset.
Yea, I think I am gonna go with the S3. Looks like a good board. Also isn't it the same as the DS3, but has capacitors?
