    This particular board can do a "mix n match" scheme. Basically you can fill the 3 PCI-e 16x slots and run ANY cards together with a matching shader model/directx. 1x gtx460+hd6850? It's possible.

    does this board have a lucid chip or does the 990 chipset support this or does it have nvidia bridge chips on it like a skulltrail?

    Lucid chip. The 990fx chipset is native crossfire only.

    Are we sure the Bulldozers can't be used in regular AM3 boards with an ACC-enabled southbridge?

    i think we need AMD confirmation on this thing because the motherboard spec really look identical.

    Hmmmmm aren't Bulldozers really slow:p............... but then again they pack alot of punch (horsepower):rockout: at the same time, so maybe these processors will operate at a low GHZ frequency but have alot more clock cycles & cache..:D:D

    At the same time, you are less likely to die in a Bulldozer than in a sportscar! I guess it works both ways! :p

    follow the Big 10 strategy and add legends and leaders and you're all set. :slap: to the Big 10 for such an idiotic move. Though going back OT I am excited to see how Bulldozer performs.

    Why?

    Is anyone else getting sick of the whole black and blue PCB scheme on AMD boards? Yes I know aesthetics mean very little to some people, and yes performance is key, but for those of us with a side window case, looks do mean something. Just look at all the new Intel boards coming out, they look cool AND have lots of great features. I'm just sayin, AMD motherboard manufacturers need to put out some variety.

    I personally love the black and blue theme, but they do need some variety. It's either black and blue with MSI and Gigabyte or black and blue/black and red with ASUS/ROG.

    Actually of all the new P-67 boards I think the Best looking board is the ECS and it's black

    Exactly, nothing against blue and black, but for those of us who wouldn't mind some red, without having to spend $100 more for crosshair board, some variety would be nice, a green, or even yellow would be great. Well I suppose you could go with a biostar 890fx, but that board is just lacking in features.

    Can't wait for MSI's 990FX-GD70 or whatever the last number will be. It'll be the one that my 790FX-GD70, which has been in my system for what is starting to become a while now, will probably be passing it's crown to.
    I'm against having a multi-card setup, so something carrying Hydra would be wasted on me. Gr8 board though. MSI is listed on my (relatively) bandwagon free brands of choice list, LOL!
