Oh bugger off. Honestly, this site needs to drop the prejudice.

I was on the brink of going nVidia/Intel when SR-2 came out, because the dual-socket appealed to me, and you don't really get that kind of thing for AMD, unless you go for server motherboards.

But I'm gonna wait how Bulldozer turns out before I make any rash decisions seeing how EVGA fares with Sandybridge.

We're on the same boat then I'm just waiting for Bulldozer to come out if it's good I'll stick with AMD if it's a flop then Intel it is

I have faith in BD. A whole new architecture AND integrated graphics CHEAPER than sandybridge? There must be something to it.

Either that or it's the flailing, spastic effort of a dying creature to defend itself.

Without their good motherboard team, i wouldn't trust eVGA to come up with anything good for amd.

Especially for a platform they haven't entertained since skt 754.

They also have probably one of the tightest contracts with nvidia known to man. If they started producing motherboards for a direct competitor, nvidia would probably give them the shaft like XFX.
