Identical, for the most part. I'm going to stop side-barring on theeldests thread and start my own thread for a couple of questions he doesn't have. I'm an Nvidia guy, so I'm looking at the 580 range of cards, and I'm also trying to decide between the Sabertooth and the Crosshair V. I love the EVGA's for the lifetime warranty, altho, to prop ASUS, I came home last night to a video display on BIOS with white dots all over it , and my 2 year, 11 month old 9800GT is in the mail today, RMA'd for repair (can we hope for replacement? ). So, they'll definitely get my MB money, while EVGA's got my vid card. Obviously with those Motherboard choices, I'm aiming at the 'Dozer, not sure which series yet. Any thoughts on one board over the other, or anyone have a specific 580 that they're partial to? Or can I knock $50 off the vid card, and only 5% performance loss with a different card? Thanks! *edit* Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB x 2 (with free Deus Ex : Human Revolution ) Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast 750 Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws 8 GB Hard Drive : Western Digital Black 2Tb, 6Gb/S Case (Inadvertant extra ) : Antec Lanboy air Blue Black / Blue Still waiting on Bulldozer, so not a lot to update for a month or so, unless I catch a steal on Hard drives, or the motherboard.
