    This is where I get confused as crap. The D945GCLF (We'll call it Board "A") and D945GCLF2 (We'll call it board "B")??

    According to the NewEgg link you provided above,
    that board is the D945GCFL - "A".
    But the specs say it's a "Dual-Core processor - B.
    It has a maximum memory capacity of 4 GB - B
    But, only has 6 USB ports - A

    And, I don't mean this only applies to this particular link...I'm finding this with most places that carry these boards. Not exactly giving me that heartwarming feeling that I'm going to get what I want. Can't seem to find any place on the web that, for sure, no doubt, we're talking about Board "B".

    That's why I was excited when I saw that mp3car was talking about carrying it. I can be sure of what I'm getting and, if I don't, I can drive up there and bang on their door!! (they're local to me)

    Ahh...getting much closer. Just need a package with the DG45FC, a CPU, and fan...and I'll click the "Buy it Now" button...oh wait, that's probably trademarked.

    Thanks for the links Fiberoptic!

    True but, for $20.00, I'll give my business to mp3car.com. Plus, as I mentioned earlier, I'm looking for a full package with the board, CPU, and fan...and support to go along with it.

    oh okay then, I understand. since I already have the parts to move over to the next board, All I have to buy is the board. which is only $114 http://www.provantage.com/intel-boxdg45id~7ITSP0KR.htm since I already used a core duo processor. You should try pricing all the parts together and see if theirs is close or more in price.

    Thanks for the business and the loyalty. Just to be clear, our boards are the BLK (Bulk, OEM) boards. No fan or CPU is included. This was in the description yesterday. Hopefully you didn't miss it. Sometime soon we will fill in the rest of the specs.

    The main reason we are stocking bulk boards is they are slightly cheaper, and most people will probably want a lower profile fan for this board (once a lower profile fan is identified). A low profile fan will be required to use a case like the morex 5677.

    I thought I would also clarify that this provantage board you link to is a MICRO atx board not a mini-itx.

    I have two Micro-atx cases, thats why Im going to buy the one from provantage. I dont use mini-itx because I use opus solutions power supplies. Micro atx has more options on-board, double the memory mor usb ports.
