Ive been clicking through a lot of the reviews and the 680i's seem to have a LOT of doa's and "wont work with my quad" posts. Is that something that has been fixed?

i'm pretty sure it has, because Kobe/Baron and mgcook all use Core 2 Quad q6600's with 680i's...

heh yeah two weeks ago. which is why i can still RMA it, if the 8800gt that i just ordered (thats RIGHT boo-yeh! LOL NVM read on!) performs as well as it has been rumored and shown.
i am really concerned with the rumored high temps, though. we'll see i guess fellas, it'll be here by FRIDAY. wo0t.
hmmmm....i'm looking at newegg and it (the evga, pny, and xfx) has a "limited non-refundable return policy".
which means that if it is a bunch of poo-poo that it performs that well, i have a card i cant return...except for another card just like it.
may have to think on this.
hmm, the asus is 10 bucks more. it comes with COH opposing fronts. it can be returned. the core clock is 50mhz less than the evga and the memory is 100mhz less. that should be an easy OC. any opinions on asus gpu's?

Or just OC the normal superclocked and pay $25-50 less, since thats all I'm seeing widely available at the moment. Or wait and pay more for minimal performance increases.

Either way, any 8800gt hax.
