I got mine for over a week but I still can't make up my mind which board to get, SLI Vs single/CF.

Until you mentioned the stock cooler I thought it was a Zalman.

I wish we had a eVGA distributor here, then it would be less of a pain.

That does suck, you sure newegg doesn't ship to hong kong .... jk. Their step-up program is a reason to chose EVGA above all(atleast with graphics cards) I belive that they also have a 10 year warranty with the 780i... Off topic, but, What graphic card vendors to you have to choose from over there?

I personally wouldn't want to go for a crossfire setup at the moment. I would wait atleast until the 3870x2 cards come out, if not the R700 for crossfire to even cross my mind. Having two gtx's and moving down to 2 3870's would be a bummer.

P.S.-Whats the weather like? You native to that region?

Only place that ship internationally that is aslo reliable is Frys, but they currently don't have any eVGA boards. For video card vendors, we pretty much have everything except eVGA and BFG.
