i mean what is wrong with the 680i board that so many of you ppl have problems with?

seriously, lets see some proof that they are just so BAD that no one should use them

as for the 650i is better statement, LOL, i deff want to see proof on that one.

if you are gaming the only boards id consider are the

680i
p5k
or ds3r

pick whichever strikes your fancy

The 680i isn't that bad, but there are just others out there, that are better for the money.

For the BIOS update, you don't have to use floppy anymore. They fixed their updater so that you can finally do it while in windows. No floppy required.

Vanhalen, IMO that is a really bad reason not to get Vista. I'm not trying to push Vista or anything but a couple points on 3DMark is a really bad reason not to get Vista.
