Get the evga 780i ftw, it is within your original pricerange, although i didn't read pages 2&3 because i saw some evil p45 and ati talk lol. I hated the p45 chipset, maybe i just hate asus boards i dunno. Link here to the ftw. nice board from what i hear. Ok, i am off to find a new way to attach this second power supply again. Jesus what a headache. When double sided tape fails, what comes next? Large strings of zip ties, or duct tape?
If you don't mind zipties, I have found in my experience, that the large thick zip ties work the best for holding heavy items. Can find them at local hardware stores pretty cheap, and works great
Ducktape will loose its hold as it gets older and as it gets warm, just fyi.
