the 650i's really are absolete now that nvidia has fixed most of the 680i bios issues.

You sound so smart, so why not recommend one?

It all depends on what your priorities are, which is why Im not recommending specific parts, but simply pointing out strengths and weakness's. I think that is a great board.

My main point was to stay away from the 650i's. There time is done. My other point was there are several good P35 solutions besides just the one everyone on here raves about.
