Couldn't find an Ultra D at either Direct Canada or NCIX but I did find one at Bigfoot Computers in TO.

DFI LANParty UT NF4 Ultra-D - $144.98

Yeah, greenlyph here in NS also has one listed, but I think it's $150.

I absolutely love my ultra-d! :)

I've been reading reviews on the Ultra-D and it's a pure kick ass board.

The Ultra-D is kick ass, I love it. Regards to the 3200+ @ 2.7GHz.. I've been running my CPU at that setting since last May... nonstop. It's a truly amazing chip, although it's hard to not be swayed towards a dual core nowadays.

Yeah my next upgrade is a dual-core, probably an opteron.

I got my ultra-d for 90$ tax in. At microbytes.com its a local retailer thouhg and I got lucky.

You might want to check out ebay for s939 chips and boards.

Shack, how long did ya get your Ultra-D? I may look on eBay but I'm leary bout buying computer parts from eBay.

Bigfoot has a good deal for one I'll check some online places or even talk to some local computer shops see if they can order me in on if there suppliers carry DFI, not too many places here do.
