Not trying to flame, and I certainly don't blame you for wanting to find a card that's fast and stable on your platform, but I'm a little curious as to what happened between today and two days ago when you posted this on Rage3D:

I'm not sure why some of u r having problems with older 9700's and X8.

I have a rev 1 9700 Pro and it works just fine on all MOBO's I've tried.
It's on a new G-bay 7205 Intel chipset now with X8 running no problem.
I do not see any problems using it on a 875P board.
From what I understand the 875 and 7205 are a lot alike
in many ways.
