Well that is really what I meant when I said upgrade, since it seems Ivy is not what it should have been

I do have a ton of files. I will check into the other board that you suggested though. Thanks

Well, I haven't purchased anything yet. I may have decided to get that new Cooler Master case. The Storm Stryker. It does not come out until July 17th. If I do that, then I am probably going to go with an Asrock Z68 or Z77 Professional. Newegg has one that is Open box right now, but I don't want to get it yet, since it would pretty close to the 30 day warranty's end before the case comes out.

I'm just taking my time on it.

I purchased this board from Newegg and it come DOA. Had to return it for a replacement which I am still waiting for...

Will not be getting another or using it when I get it. I decided on the Deluxe instead...

Why not get this one, and still get the thunderbolt. Plus this one actually has the Asmedia controller for the Sata3, instead of the Marvell
