Man that black PCB is sharp. That was the one thing I always really liked about EVGA's motherboards - and their style/design is a bit better, but now I have another (likely more stable) option :D

Hrmmmm... no pci slots at all on one of them.... somebody remind me.... can a standard PCI card be run in a PCIe slot? (I don't believe so).

As much as I'd like to say differently, add-on card manufacturers for things like tv cards and/or sound cards haven't exactly been beating down the doors in an attempt to migrate their offerings over to PCIe from PCI.

The black PCB looks fantastic but Gigabyte really needs to work on their expansion slot layout. And no PCI will not fit in PCIe.

I think it already happens frequently with 1366 and 1156 -- especially i7's.
