I am definitly steping up to this mobo if it is in a reasonable price. I plan that this will be my mobo for a few years lol.
I think I will end up in the same boat as you.

End of March my step up expires.

Found a couple cases from Lian Li that allow 8 expansion slots or more. The one I just ordered for this mobo is LIAN-LI PC-P80B. Canada Computers - Cases > Full/Server Towers : LIAN-LI PC-P80B Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case.

Gonna have my Tri-SLI GTX 260's a XFI Titanium Fatal1ty for sound and a 9800 GT for physx. Gonna let ya guy know how it works out. This is gonna be sweet.

Should be mentioned that this is not the final design.

I saw it today. From what I was told, the only major change will be with the main heatsink since its current design does not allow all CPU coolers to be installed. Let me dig out the semi-decent pic I took...

Please note the extra 8-pin CPU connector and the red LED in the heatsink.
