Why ZipZoomFly?

Newegg is much better IMO. More professional.


Any way I would go for an Asus P5B Vanilla. Or even an Delux.


The MSI board is nice too.

Stay away from 650i Chipsets.

Poor Navigation on Newegg to me lol... thas why i like ZZF... Easy to nav...

anyway...

I was wondering about the 650i chipset, looks like a cheap reproduction of the 680i lol, but i might just go wit the MSI board...

any particular reason to avoid the 650i?
