No integrated PCI-E for a while then. Still waiting for official, it's strange the last official roadmap mentioned up to 10 cores and this one only 8. Maybe they realised 10 will be super overkill for desktops? I hope they just got for implementing all the big changes to the platform once they go DDR4 probably sometime in 2013.

ASUS Crosshair V Formula. Hands down for two reasons - Intel Gb Ethernet and X-Fi2 Audio. Avoiding realtek without the need for expansion cards is well worth the money!
