the floppy is more for doing bios flashes, or installing sata/raid drivers for the XP and all.

LOL, in what sense are high-end enthuist mobo's "normal"? I wonder how many ppl truly use them all simultaneously, and crawl behind their computer each time they want to plug/unplug something, vs using a hub. Just another gimmick IMO, furthering the "more is better" mentality, already rampant in the modding community.

I use 7 lol.. Steering Wheel, Joystick, Fang Keypad, Razer Mouse, UPS, Track IR 4 and Pentax Camera. Would be 8 if i went to the newer keyboards but don't like the new ones. All but camera is always plugged in.

Cool. Personally I'm sick of the cord... old, outdated, can't stand it. Once they are able to transfer more data via bluetooth (although most peripherals work fine with it) that will be great. Death to all cords :mad:

I have never used 10 ports but I use about 5....

the best part is using the front connectors when u use Flash drive etc..

you mean sometimes biostar boards look like DFI's.

This is just a slightly lower end model of the Lanparty 790FX-M2R...

the way DFI works from top of the line down (enthusiast market only)

Lanparty UT
Lanparty DK
Infinity

I know some boards can use a USB drive to boot from now, so in the same line of thinking, I wonder if these also work for firware upgrades? I haven't heard anything about it... anyone tried or know?
