    All the links... broken.:(

    You sure you need a motherboard with onboard graphics? 890fx should be out soon.

    Fixed, and i'd actually prefer GX, as I don't feel like waiting until April. If I wanna upgrade my birthday is the same day as FX's and thubans official release date (April 26th)

    Why would you want a board with onboard graphics if you already have a great video card? I realize that it can be disabled in the BIOS, but I would really rather not even physically have it there...

    Because if his vidcard goes to poop he will have a backup and his rig won't be dead while RMAing? :laugh:

    I want 890GX in case my card goes poop. I don't care weather I have x8/x8 or x16/x16 because most cards don't saturate x8/x8 and if they do, you get a 5% loss at most and i've only Crossfired once and preferred single card over dual cards


    Not interested in the ASUS board. I don't get whats w/ the height of the 8-pin CPU power socket and I am waiting for a 890GX board w/ power on-board.

    Not to mention a switch card..seriously.
