Hey, Im planning on upgrading my almost 2 year old AMD System that was originally from Alienware. But as much upgrades as I have done to it I don't really count it as one anymore! But anyway onto the point, I'm upgrading to a Intel Quad Core system for christmas, I have a 8800GTS 640mb that is the original one not the G92. I game on my desktop more than anything since I do most of my other things on my laptop and I thought it was an upgrade. I also currently have a nForce 590 SLi board, I am probably going to SLi sometime after I do this upgrade but it wont be till late '09. I was originally going to get a XFX or eVGA 780i Motherboard to go with the CPU but as I was reading I read a lot of good things about it but I am still wondering if there is still something that is around the same price that is just as good or maybe better! But I have around a $420 budget and with the 780i it is at $405 USD. This is also from Newegg. But I am ordering the parts this weekend and wanted to check about the motherboard before I actually upgraded!
