    EVGA X79 FTW 151-SE-E777-K2 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SAT...

    Sweet deal on a Sweet Board.

    Not So "Sweet"anymore.

    I'm in the US, I Don't use Canada N/E, It must of Been Priced incorrectly, Which is why I posted it ASAP. If it shows @ 320, You are too slow.

    I was just looking Through @ hardware, and Saw a Good deal on a 2011 board, and @ the $180, that it listed @ , it WAS a GOOD DEAL.

    I Wouldn't list it @ this price. Gimme a little credit.

    Horrible board for that price - and I speak from experience. EVGA has some major quirks to work out of their X79 boards.

    Some people have different expirience...
    With 3930k and 3960x I would try X79 FTW K2 like first options.
    But I don't need Extreme for my needs.

    It's bad because so many problems because I can't imagine experience when you after some ASRock hold EVGA X79 FTW example on X79 Classified, that quality and look.
    Nothing can compares with EVGA on that way... when ROG look so naively, all their options sudennly in second look like toys compare with simple solid EVGA.... when put next to EVGA... I try that... but they have some big problems with BIOS or I don't know... but some samples work 100% excellent.

    It doesn't look like it offers much for the price range. In fact I'm rather disappointed considering the price and load out. I would trust eVGA with a video card but not with a motherboard. For similar price I got my ASUS P9X79 Deluxe which I think is a little more feature filled (and perhaps less buggy,) than this. Honestly, 30 more dollars for a board that is not on sale that offers more is a better deal IMHO.

    ASUS P9X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s US...

    OK everybody choose, my motherboard must be dark and black, grey, red, nothing like yellow, orange, sky blue...
    ROG or EVGA but I'm not happy with ASUS at all. That only if no other options...I try to avoid that for any cost...
    Than some ROG and I like E-ATX.

    the color of the board and such should be the least thought of thing when buying a mobo.

    Unless you want it to look pretty. I tend to favor performance than how it looks. It's a nice coincidence when colors do line up though. :p

    i got over looks and side windows when I got my P280 case. I could care less about color schemes, performance and/or price are more important issues.
