Cannot view that page, I do not currently have a Newegg account.

What I'd really suggest you do however is wait 2-3 weeks for the new ATi cards to come out and get a P35 board. You'll be a lot happier in the long run.
Got it, so its basically not worth it? Okay, that's good, I can save a few bucks. Now about your ATi comment, I heard that the ATi cards are coming back with a good comeback, but will it be enough? I've always been an NVIDIA fan, but if AMD comes back I'm willing to jump the bandwagon. (Anyways, I need to wait a few weeks in order to get the money, so that works. I'm just basically doing research, getting parts together, and hoping everything works.)
Now, what about the potential overclocking? If I stick in the 680i SLI EVGA board, would that make the overclocking better? Thanks a lot, you guys have been really helpful!
