bingo...that is simply the case. i am hoping to have a couple heavier duty cards on hand in the next couple of weeks to continue testing with, i'll be sure to post results here as i know plenty of folks are interested. it is funny, it was the first thing i wanted to test once getting the board so it is fitting o hear it was the first thing some folks are looking at

Thanks to your review, I have no doubts that I bought the right board for my i7 setup . Now if only that dang RAM would arrive...
thank-you...glad you enjoyed the review and you are sure to enjoy the board. i have found it quite easy to work with once you get the hang of i7 clocking and more than stable for daily grind work...not to mention it loves benching.

Imo the NF200 chip is ridiculous. The first time I saw it I said "You can't just say 2=4 and call it a day."

Yet another useless piece of engineering that was created at the behest of the marketing department :(

Aye, I think so as well. Perhaps when 32nm rolls around we will see some insane performance levels due to the wider bottleneck, but that may still be some time.

Now when are those 40nm GPU's coming out? Nvidia's got the 55nm GTX295 and GTX350, but then you have ATI who is supposedly cooking up a 40nm monster; Only time will tell
