Default this sucks...

I finally found the problem with my PC. It's the motherboard. I took off the cpu, and found 4 pins near the left side (nearest to the back of the case; near the rear fan), that are broken... I can RMA my ds3 (p965), and wait a few weeks, or get a new motherboard completely.

What is your call?

I have probably 370~350 in a week or 2... I have 270 now, and depending on how much I get for my XTX (think the mobo was causing all the problems), I could have about 350. So maybe a DS3L? 650i? I don't really need all the SATA, or Xfire stuff.
