Microinformatique in St-Hubert has the Asus: Micro@Informatique, but not the Abit.

Maximus all the way. For the last year Abit's boards have really failed to impress me.

Buy it from Sohodiffusion. Great prices and friendly people:

Sohodiffusion.com - ASUS MAXIMUS FORMULA ST.775 INTL X38/ICH9R ATX 2PCI/2PCI-E 16X/2PCIE 1X, SATA RAID 4DDR2-1066MHZ1394

They are on Richardson in Montreal:

About 24 hours most of the time. Just watch out...that building is VERY confusing. It is massive an very easy to get lost in so make sure you take a good look at the maps when you go into it. Or ask at the main desk for directions to Sohodiffusion.

Thanks for the info SKYMTL, i check the payment method in sohodiffusion and they say:

"If you come to our pick up counter:
Cash / certified cheque / money order / Corporate cheque (registered dealers only)"


is that mean when you go to pickup delivery you can pay it by cash?

I saw the picture of building, geez it too big and you are right look very confusing to find it.

But looking at the price of their product is too low compare to others. Well i tried to make an order, and after those q's ask they said they will email me about my transaction. Does it mean your order is in process now or they will still wait for you confirmation?

Yes. Now you have to wait for confimation. But if you have issues, their customer service is VERY good and they should get back to you fast. The only problem you may have is that Christmas is approaching so it may be a few days before they get back to you....because of vacations and all.

When you DO go pick it up...tell them about the site. :D
