    Thanks for finding that, been wanting to try a newer AMD setup for a while but no good MBs for SLi till this came out.

    I wouldn't get too excited if I were you, as the nForce 980 is a mere rebranded nForce 780. The only novelties are AM3 and DDR3 support.

    Why did Asus step down from their usual 8+2 to an 8+1 phase power design? Also, the PCB looks kinda empty

    Edit: "Integrated NVIDIA® GeForce® 8 series GPU" but no display connector?

    I never said there was anything wrong with it. I was just warning other people who think of it as something new that it's rebranded old tech, much like what nVidia's been doing with their graphics card. Knowing what you're buying always turns things to your advantage.
