I've seen the evga & xfx around, but not the asus 790i ultra board (in the US). Anyone have a source, or know if/when they are being launched later???

Thanks

That should mean its launched then, but any US site I find says pre-order or no stock. Wierd...

Yeah. You guys usually get stock before us. I would just try calling one of your 'good' suppliers and ask when there due. Can't be far off now.

If you do get a new Extreme, be sure to post your thoughts on the mobo :D

281.40 is 560.781 USD, that's some mobo, LOL.

And how come the Evga one is more expensive than the Asus?

In the US the Evga is about 100 USD less.

We always have to pay a fair bit more than the US for hardware over here. As a rough rule, if you get the price in $, the UK price is about 2/3 of that in .

eg, $300 converts to about 150, but you can bet we'll pay 200.

For that price, get a skulltrail.

For that price, get a skulltrail.

A SkullTrail rig costs a whole lot more than just the mobo, which is 350 anyhow.

I want one also, but I will have to let the major early birds get the worm and the bitterness out of it first, then I will take my turn at that time. Usually, the first wave will be filled with instability issues, problems, glitches, etc... Once the manufacturer gets all these data back, then they will lauch the second revision to kind of smoothing out the rough spots the first revision presents. I usually go for the second round. By that time, I know exactly what to pick. Thanks to all the beta testers.
