Default NCIX & Sandy Bridge

You guys think NCIX will start selling Sandy CPUs starting tomorrow? They are going on sale globally on Jan 9th correct? I think I saw this date somewhere but can't recall, please do let me know.

:)

I am trying to figure out which one to get myself. I like the MSI P67A-GD65 but I really love the UD7. I really wish the UD5 had some more sata III ports and I would just get it.

Haven't had to many Asus boards so not sure which one of theirs to go with.

Why do you need more Sata 6Gbps ports?

I agree with lowfat. Just get the UD5. Gigabyte showed us they are solid board and awesome overclocker. Also, the new color are killer:)

I was thinking the same thing. I guess I want the extra Sata just by the off chance I get super rich all of the sudden and can afford 4 of the fastest Sata drives on the market

At this point the most I will ever use will be 2. One big issue is I have 7 sata devices currently. Time to cut down on some drives.

Would people recommend WD Blacks over Seagate/Samsung F3's?
