Well I purchased this board about 2 weeks ago, I am waiting to install it because I plan on upgraded my cpu soon so I decided to wait. And also Heinzftw the 780i does not support ddr3 ram. And another reason why I haven't installed it was because of the 790i motherboard comes out in the next few weeks I will return the 780i. But from the reviews I have read the 780i is fantastic !!

the reason i didnt go ddr3 is because the ram is to expensive for me ill be happy with the 780i.ive seen some reviews for the xfx 780i and they have been good so far...
