I'd only get that board over an ASUS/Gigabyte board if you're actually gonna utilize the 4 PCI-e x16 slots.

Here's what I'd get - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128435

Don't ever get my Foxconn board btw...it sucks. There were no reviews on it when I got it and I figured nothing to lose as I'm not big on overclocking but most people here are...so definitely not the best bet for that division.
No matter what brand of board you look at there's any number of bad customer reviews. Most of those bad reviews are from people who don't know squat IMO. That being said the numbers point to some legit bad reviews on all brands. Some brands are better than others. ASUS and Gigabyte being the top two with MSI rounding out the top three. As General E can attest I'm a bit of a MSI fanboy. My 865PE Neo2-V is absolutely unkillable, believe me my stupidity has made many attempts on that boards life and it laughed in the face of my danger and kept on chugging. I'm writing this using it now, but with that in mind I just sent back my second 790FX-GD70. The first one worked great for a month and a half then while loading a game it shut down and never came back. The second one, FF code right out of the box. Now I think the second board was used as it didn't look right upon close inspection. For instance the grounding beads around the the screw holes were all flattened like the board had been installed and removed multiple times and a few other things make me think someone in the MSI RMA dept. botched my RMA. Hopefully MSI will get the next one right and at least their paying for the shipping this time around, so I'm pretty pleased with customer service up to this point. If the third board doesn't work and it should because I've tested all my other components and they work fine, I'll be requesting a refund and will be moving on to another brand. So in the end it seems like luck of the draw. The best anyone can do is research a ton on compatibility between components and keep their fingers crossed.

As for you Clee, the guys on the 709FX-GD70 thread consider that combo pretty sick for overclockability, but there are a number of guys having trouble with it as well. I'd say give that thread a once over before making a commitment cuz this RMA ping pong game is getting very, very tiring to me.

I totally agree with the General on that .. Thanks K-10. Those are my thoughts exactly. + the Thuban 6 core is coming out this month I believe. Thats why the quads are dumping in price.

could not have said it better myself. Actually the way they made us remember it in the Air Force was

Be My Little Girl

Be = Brigadere Gen
My= Major Gen
Little = Lieutenant Gen
Girl = General

K-10 is a Brigadere Gen and I am a Lieutenant General.

Now on an important note.

The 890 Chipset is the way to go. It will be the new standard and will probably have and 870 and an 850 edition. Depending on the amount of ATI cards you want to add to them.

Sata 3 is coming
USB 3 is coming.

Just wait and save your money for another couple of weeks.. then buy. Trust me. the New thuban 6 core is coming out and I might just get wood on that one. Supposed to be overclockable. All this stuff is slated for this month and May. Save your duckies for just a little longer guys or there is going to be some real buyers remorse going on.
