Default anyone else hyped to get the MSI K9A2 Platinum 790FX?

i cant find it anywhere! Only this one from ebay:

NEW!! MSI K9A2 Platinum 790FX Socket AM2+ Motherboard - (eBay item 170177321042 end time Jan-08-08 21:52:13 PST)

ever since i found out that this is best OC mobo for Phenoms right now, i was like, "Dang it! I wish i knew this earlier, otherwise i would of gotten it!"

so according to dailytech a while back, MSI says they r shipping more mobos this week n what i find today is a cheezy mobo:

Newegg.com - MSI K9A2 CF-F AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX AMD Motherboard - Retail

ive been checking, refreshing on newegg everyday ever since i read that article from dailytech to make sure i purchase it. Anyone else trying to get this mobo besides me?

according to Apokalipse, the MSI K9A2 Platinum can achieve better OCing speeds n stability than the GIGABYTE mobos. He says the MSI mobo is used in most of the benchmarks online then GIGABYTE.

u think i should just buy this one off ebay or just wait for newegg to get them in stock again? The ebay one has pricer shipping .
