Maybe you should ask some local jeweler. They have really fine hand and if they can play in a watch they can sertainly un bend this baby. Just give them a call maybe they will help you. If not, I would suggest to do nothing because it's really hard to bend back as I already mention.

If I recall, some of these pins aren't exactly used, which is why things are working fine.

It's possible that it'll have no effect at all. Only way to find out is to try OC'ing and see!

LoL, no thanks. I don't want someone coming to my door and beating me up to steal my stuff. If it doesn't work (I'll find out in a few hours), then I'll just get the Asus P5N-T. Not as good as the P5N72-T Premium, but it'll work.

Well if you are buying a new board I would strongly sugest to get a P45 board. There are reason why Intel and soon AMD drop kick Nvidia for their chipset...If it's a board that lay somewhere at your home then go for it. Or if you are running sli and have no other choice then...

What is the Intel Motherboard Chipset equivalent of the 780i?
Edit: No, I don't have any spare motherboards sitting around. I'm like a newby to computers. This was the first rig I ever built, and it was with the help of my friend.

Well a P35 would be way better even if it's no more on sale. P45 is the one to get actually. You can have some good'n cheap P45 or look here at HWC in the BST section. Some member have good board for sale maybe. The main difference between 780I and P45 is that the P45 don't suport sli but if you are running a single card then it dosen't matter. GL

Neither. Intel boards of late aren't great and you can't overclock. As for the Gigabyte, it uses DDR3. Martin's suggestion would be best.

Very good board. The only problem is that using a long video card in the second slot will block half of the SATA ports.
