is the 8rda the board to get?

Okay i'm entertaining new motherboard options, and it seems like the 8rda+ is the board to get. I've owned an 8k7a, and have a 8k3a currently. I have great faith in epox boards, but I've noticed that there are an extreme number of 8rda posts everywhere, everything from big problems to great overclocks, what I want to know is it the 8rda a good purchase right now. I currently have the 8k3a with a 1700+ @ 2075mhz (12.5x166fsb). I'm getting some hyperx pc3000 right now, so I'm wanting to go pretty high fsb wise, and I don't think my 8k3a will be able to handle it seeing how it doesn't have a agp/pci lock. I don't really want to mess up my devices.

So if I get a 8rda, what are the chances that I will be able to run at a pretty high fsb (say 200-210) and aggressive timings? Also, I've heard some stuff about vdd modding the board, and I'm a bit wary about actually modding the board, what exactly does this do and how difficult is it?

get 8RGA+ instead, it will give ya Vdd-adjustment and more stable voltages due to the additional 12v connector
