    Groovy.

    But with all the show, we'll also need:

    Processors from AMD and video-cards from ATI that equally compliment these boards. With the AMD Barcelona not quite being able to 'dethrone' equally priced Intel Quad-core chips, I don't have high expectations from either AMD's Phenom line of processors or ATI's CrossFire X technology.

    But I admit, Asus always came up with gorgeous-looking boards.

    AMDs phenoms should spar well with intels cpus. These boards will definitely help, Asus seems to build some of the best, prettiest and most stable boards around. I imagine these suckers OC very well and the bios should have tons of options.

    Is it just me, or do I see the first 2 pictures as the same exact looking motherboard boxes, but essentially different looking motherboards? :twitch:

    Most online tech-reviews today show a clear bias toward Intel and Nvidia, the benchmark of a system identical to mine had such awful CPU scores than mine when I used the same tools.

    So whether or not I buy the Phenom will depend on TPU forum users who buy it and post un-biased benchmark results. I trust you guys.

    Well, since they broke the NDA, the original site or link is dead now. Sorry guys, but a rule is a rule for everybody. I never broke an NDA.
