All ROG boards look nice IMO. If I decide to go ATI on the next graphics cards this could be the mobo to get.

Saying that, P45 chipset mobo's don't have more than one 16x PCI-E do they?

I think with this board it's either 16x + 4x or 8x + 8x with a PCI Ex2.0 card 8x is enough bandwith as 1.0 16x so no diffrence really.

Me likes it a lot, and it would have to go into a clear case so I could look at it.
