Does anyone know if any supplier in NZ has this mobo in stock?
This seems like an awesome motherboard with 790GX chipset, just what I need to replace my aging M2N, and the price should be below $300... But I can't find it anywhere... Cry

hellonearthisman: $333 free shipping DFI LANPARTY JR 790GX-M2RS Motherboard, Socket AM2+, 2000MHz FSB, 4xDIMM, DDR2, 2xPCIe-16, 1xPCI, 1xPCIe-1, 12xUSB2, Audio, Video, ATA, RAID, M-ATX, ATI CrossFireX    and -$5 cash.


Hmm... Here is the ASRock, which got rave reviews from Newegg users, for $241.31 inc. GST. That's almost $100 cheaper than the DFI you suggested. The only problem is - it's out of stock. And it seems to be out of stock everwhere.

ASRock gets rave reviews? Have they got better or something? I've stayed away from ASRock for a few years as they used to be known for failing quite regularly.

I see that board has all solid caps so thats a good start.

Yeah, I haven't touched ASRock for years, but apparently they have been getting better and better.
Here is an OCW review and they seem to be very happy with it. Most neweggers tend to agree http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157141&Tpk=AOD790GX
