That board does look nice though!
I'm not, its just that this board is the only one that is planned to come out that pleases me. On board power and reset, ClrCmos on the I/O and a real nice layout. The Gigabyte one is down to basics and the second PCI-E x16 slot only has x8 connections even if you are only using one card. The MSI one is MATX and only has a 4 pin CPU power, and the ASUS ones are plain dumb IMO.

I also know that there are quite a few people really interested in this board.

I don't understand why a board that supports on board video has the capability to run 3 way crossfire x. It seems pointless to me.

Well at x8/x8/x4 it is pointless, but its a feature it has, so they might as well advertise it. I'd say the 3rd slot would be more useful for some other card that could benefit from x4 bandwidth.
