Newegg makes me uneasy in general, but it's still darn cheap.

That's what RMA's are for. Save the money, buy OB and if need be, RMA it. Asus is good about RMA's.

Personally, I would wait a few weeks and see what Z68 based boards come out. The new ME4 Z68 is due out the end of the month. Asrock has their new Extreme7 coming out which also has the NF200. If all you want to do is SLI, skip the NF200 based boards and do something like the Asrock Extreme4 or 6 or the Extreme4 Z68, all three support SLI and cost a lot less.

I don't like to buy stuff just to rma it. I buy stuff and I want it to work immediately. Too many horror stories about missing parts, bent components, bent pcbs, etc w/ newegg ob. Also, you have to pay for return shipping, and shipping a mb is not cheap, I have sold a few and it can get expensive. Plus, you have to wait until you get a replacement which most likely will end up being a repaired/refurbished unit. No thank you. I just buy retail and stay safe and have my rig up and running now, not until Asus rma can get me a mb
