Why are people saying that there are "bugs" with the 680i? I have had mine, (did a recent BIOS flash), for 4-5 months now without a single hitch.
I only have 2 SATA ports left, and am actually worrying about running out, and my dual NIC setup gets used everyday. The features of the 680i are amazing for power users, but 650, I would have to agree, is sufficient for adverage users. There are just so many great features with the 680i. I wish I had a striker.
The third X16 slot was supposed to be for a third videocard (not sure about nVidia's cards) acting as a physics processor. I doubt it will catch on.
ATI's RD600 will sport three PCIe 16X slots
