Default 680i boards

Does anybody know if any other companies are supposed to come out with a 680i board anytime soon?

Don't know for sure but I'm sure they will. DFI would be a logical one to expect soon. Since the 680i is being touted as the "extreme gaming board", several more companies will jump in the mix. I just ordered the evga board you have listed. Seems like a great board as long as you flash the bios and get all the latest drivers. It seems funny that you have to fix it immediately upon opening the box but hey, we all love to tinker with this stuff and that is what happens when you want the latest and greatest. It seems like evga is very committed to supporting the board and responding to arising problems so I would just go for that one.

Do you guys know if the 650i is a good board? I'm thinking of ordering one, and was wondering, if it's a good budget board.
