only thing they are missing is SLI support. But I imagine that wont be long.

Yeah now with the whole AMD/ATI thing. Maybe nvidia will let us run SLI on the P5B-D. Im pretty sure you can run SLI and crossfire on it with hacked drivers.

You guys know how I feel so I will not say too much on the subject.;)

I have had both Intel and Nvidia chipsets and to be honest the ASUS Striker Extreme is by far the best board I have ever tested or owned.:D The second best I have owned was the ABIT AA8XE intel chipset board.

I don't disagree with you, but if there is a bad batch of 680i chipsets, they could very well have a good point.

I RMA'd my Evga 680i for SATA issues. My striker so far is solid. Hope they drop a new BIOS soon, cause my X-FI is unusable in SLI.
