I don't have it, but I know why you bought it. It is supposed to be the best gaming board according to some sources. I think most on this site my feel that it is overkill and not the best for the money, but I would never criticize someone for buying the best.

the most expensive doesnt always mean its the best.
my 60.00 brisbane 3600 is the CHEAPEST amd cpu...it is also the BEST overclocker in the lineup. see where im going here?
what makes that mobo the best gaming board? what makes it worth so much more than others? ie what does it achieve that you cant achieve with a motherboard half its price? more headshots? lower ping? lol...thats what im sayin...

Well Q8500 is 'bloody amazing' aswell, but does that mean it is a better buy than a Q6600? Ill leave that for you to decide.

nagasama just explained everything in 1 paragraph. Really, a motherboard that is the most expensive on the market doesn't mean it is the best 'gaming' board.

^ exactly/... plus it uses an older chipset... 680i is old in my opinion heh.. but teh Asus P5K Deluxe is what i call the ultimate board... its the p35 chipset.. and a better overclocker than the 680i and got the same features... (i think)
