Im passing my experience on to others.. this is my experience with this motherboard along with 1000's of others experience too. Personally i dont like to run the gaunlet when purchasing a product. Will it be a good one or a bad one. If i knew before hand i would of never bought this board! Stick to something realiable. Until theres a solid fix this is what im gonna say about this motherboard, if you dont like it tough.

You quite perspective arent you. GX2 is the simple answer or even one 280 GTX will be enough. New Tech on the way not worth getting sli right now. Btw mate lose the attitude you wont get anywhere in life with it.

Theres always new tech coming, you've got to jump onboard at some point otherwise all your ever going to do is play a waiting game.

I didn't lose my temper in that post btw, I'm just saying, yeah, it sucks that a part isn't working properly, but rma it and move on.

Also I don't think I've seen you recommend any other parts to the op instead of whats already been recommended. Instead of ranting about what a terrible board it is, maybe you should spend that time helping the guy.

Let me see what I can put together as a whole system. And I'll use an x38 motherboard to appease shaolin.

If you want to your welcome to wait for the new ones to come out. But in all likelihood when they are released you'll be paying an arm and a leg. I'd recommend getting two of the cards I listed for now and when the new cards are a reasonable price then upgrade.

Nope.

DDR2 is going to be pretty standard for a fair bit longer.
