Thats the 780i right? How much did you have to pay for it. I found it for 320 at that motherboard store whatever its called. Next time my 680i burns up, i'm probably getting that same board, then selling the rma

Edit, nm it wsa the evga board i was looking at. They had it for 230.

Maximus boards are X38 crossfire boards, not 780i SLI anyways.

I was thinking of getting the Maximus or the EVGA 780i for my new QX9650, but decided with the new gen in GFX cards on the horizion to wait and buy my new gaming laptop instead.

Nice board. When your done w/ it you can bring to the metal recycling center and get paid for all that freaking copper on it.

Nosboost you like Deadmau5 too? I thought I was the only one on here that liked house music. A couple of weeks ago I went to a place called Therapy from 2-8 in the morning. The next day I was mega sore from dancing, haha
