But always use paypal when going through online shops. They actually help. As much as paypal rapes us. They at least help with online retailers.

No thanks, I will never give Paypal any money ever again. You're lucky the seller never responded to Paypal's emails, cause if they did, Paypal would have screwed you.

I bought a New video card for my old system and was shipped a refurbished one....I could tell it was refurbished because the idiot bought it from Newegg and had them ship it direct to me. The packing slip clearly showed it was a refurb. The seller denied it, and Paypal stated the packing slip (with the seller's name as buyer and my name as shipping address) was not proof, I had to get a 3rd party appraisal of the card. Retarded.

Cost me $180 and I learned my lesson.

On topic....that's a nice board, I thought about getting the E version myself, but Newegg was out of stock on it when I was ordering, and I was already over budget.


There is one thing to consider, the 8xx are not completely obsoulete or anything, you might wait until July when the Conroe's come out (or at least until Intel releases some benchmarks on it) and see what it offers.

I went ahead with a Pressler cause my old system was still a 478 setup and I wanted to upgrade now (before I spent the money on something else LOL).

Conroe is a big unknown right now, but it's something to think about.
