It is not crap, it is a great board. They fixed the bugs. You just need to flash the bios and install the new chipset drivers. I LOVE the board. As you can see from my sig, it overclocks extremely well and has SLI as an option. It was buggy at first, not any more. The asus he mentions above are good as well. Really up to if you want SLI and control over EVERYTHING in the bios.
