    What happens if you get a BSOD? Do you get more Horse power if you Overclock it? How about an aftermarket cooling solution?

    If 1080p is an issue, why can't they just add a PCI-E slot just to make people feel better?:confused:

    Classy, except no wifi. My current setup probably cost me 10fold of this current mb and does half the shit. Then again im 6 years behind for an update invehicle.

    For the person with the HD tv on his roof concerned with 1080p, they have USB gfx cards, which cancels out the need for a pci-e slot.
