I agree I don't like any of them. I did like the leaked Asus Maximus V pics though. The board looks nice. Either way, I will not be upgrading my board for any of the current line up. I will see future offerings.

Your profile says you're in Toronto, so I'm assuming you want to buy in US and bring it back to Toronto?
If that's the case, that place fulfill exactly what you need tongue.gif

I read it wrong, thought it was the other way around, I cannot express how happy I am right now! +rep! Do you think this is faster then normal USPS straight to Canada?

Definitely. It doesn't need to clear customs, as you're delivering within the states.

For me, I usually go early Saturday, about a 2 hour trip tops if you go at a good time, since you don't have to wait at border.

The hard part is taking it back I guess, but that's up to your "interpersonal" skills I guess biggrin.gif

Stay away from Rainbow/Peace bridge, use the Lewiston one instead. Rainbow/Peace guards always check me =/ But I just throw away original packaging and keep the card only tucked in my bag so it's all good biggrin.gif

If you want to play it safe, you could just bring a like an old 6800 box, tuck in say a 680GTX, and declare that for 50$ lollol. You have to have your own invoice made though tongue.gif

Pick up only, shipping always results in duty + tax!

Hence the word "smuggle".

yea I feel you, there is really not much reason for someone with Z68 to upgrade. I actually like the Sniper 3, and the ROG boards look decent. However i prefer gigabyte Z68 heatsinks.

Once I pick it up and go back to Canada, do I need an invoice to show them? or can I just say I always carry around a GTX 680? LOL

Wow they did it again, in my opinion those heatsinks are ugly.. I question why they decided to use them again.

If you wanna do it legit, keep ALL your receipts from your trip over so you can present them to the border guards when they ask you. Or just stash it somewhere, that's what I do.

Throw away original packaging, stash video card in gym bag. Profit!

"Why did you go to the US?"
Visit a friend
"where does he live?"
*gives friends address.
"okay sir"
