If you have deep-pocketed enthusiasts who will pay the price, you can expect to see this sort of thing.

The ASUS 680I is the one to get
look at this rewiev
looks like the EVGA is crappy

"The board has been fantastically stable during our testing over the last few weeks - a far cry from the stability (or lack thereof) that we've experienced on the NVIDIA-designed EVGA nForce 680i SLI board that is being sold at retail outlets worldwide. However, we will reserve our final judgements on the Striker Extreme until after we've had a retail board in our labs and subjected to our usual battery of stress testing."

The EVGA 680i is not that bad of a board ,granted it don't have the pretty lights or the LCD for the back pannel,but other then that the EVGA 680i is a good board ,It overclocks over 500 on the fsb.My board has been stable ,it had a sound problem when running SLI ,but EVGA has done put out a beta Bios that fixed that ,and the EVGA 680i does have great support in thr forms ,just tell them in the fourms what problem you are haveing and in no time they are working on it .and looking at some reviews of people that have the striker Extreme they are haveing problem too with that board and the sound issuse is on that board too and it comes with X-Fi ,at least Evga has that problem fixed.IMO it is just not woth the extra ,But ever new motherboard has it growing pains ,so if you have the extra cash get one but IMO the EVGA is not that bad of a board.

I am starting to think twice about this board as it looks impressive nice features and layout. If i cut back on the CPU a bit can get one and over
clock the hell out of it.
