someone update me... what are the benefits of 680i? Everyone keeps talking about it, but noone actually says how it is better than anything else we have ever used....

i doubt its better, its just more future proof with 1333 bus speed ability.

I am tempted to purchase one. It doesn't have a pic of it though. I want to see what it looks like.

Kinda wary about buying an eVGA board. Think I'll wait for Asus.

I am almost sure that mobo is made by Foxconn regardless of who is selling it. I am thinking the 8800GTX is going to own 1680x so hard I won't need worry about SLi.

Just curious - does this have 4 memory banks like I think it does and allow for dual channel memory? I may end up going 4GB on my new PC then.

Several years ago I bought quite a few things from Mwave. While they don't have their online store wired as good as newegg, they have always delivered for me without a problem.

Is Foxconn a good vendor?

Do you think we'll see a variety of 680i boards in the coming days? Or just this one? I heard Asus's may not release until mid-month?

All modern mobos have support for dual-channel RAM.

Honestly Xion I haven't been following the 680i boards and am happy with what I have.

I haven't had direct experience with Foxconn so I am going to keep my piehole shut on that.

There's general info:

Heh sorry - I haven't bought a new motherboard in over 2 1/2 years. My last one was socket 940-based and has a FX-53.

Foxconn motherboards have been around awhile, mainly OEM. But they recently entered the enthusiast market with the 570/590 boards. Still, grabbing the first available with a price of $250+ is risky.
In my opinion wait for the major players like MSI, DFI, Asus/Gigabyte, etc. to come out with their boards and pick the one you like the best. Foxconn or the EVGA branded board may meet your needs...then you may wish you had waited a little longer to see what else will be available.
