Guess not, but wonder if they checked it thoroughly. Have they updated the BIOS? If not, can you check if it has an update?

Need to update my siggy!

I don't buy Gigabyte just because of their RMA policy. If you had bought a EVGA mobo they would cross ship you a new one.

Yeah I know. That is why I do not want to send it back again and be without a computer for another 2 weeks. I thought about trying to find a good used motherboard and not even worrying about RMA'ing this board again.

But before I buy a different board, I am going to install Windows 7 32 bit and see what happens.

I have also thought about building a whole new system and let a family member have this one. It does fine as long as no games are played on it or messing with alot of files. I am getting fed up with this crap. I am wanting to get back into gaming so bad. I was really looking forward to playing BF: BC2

Antec 1200
Intel Core i7 920@2.7ghz
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Noctua NH-D14
ATI Radeon HD5870
Corsair 6gb DDR3 1600
Corsair 850HX PSU
OCZ Vertex 2 120gb SSD
WD Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500gb
Windows 7 Pro 64bit

I know someone who pressed yes...
