Can you elaborate on this? Why don't you recommend any nVidia chipset? From what I've been reading lately the 680i seems to be a pretty solid chipset.

Thinking of ordering the EVGA 680i SLI mobo to go along with an 8800GTX, an E6600 slapped in a TJ09 case with a BenQ 24" monitor.

a) Any strong reasons not to and if so, what recommendations for comparably priced mobos?

b) I thought I read in one of the reviews that some CPU coolers are a tight fit on the EVGA...any suggestions for a good one that does fit?

Also, probably ordering from NCIX. Is it true that they don't charge Ontario PST?

Yes...they don't charge us PST.
