    Obviously the author of this PR was a momma's boy. Anyways, I recon it will be slightly on the expensive side. "Look mom: PCI-E lane arbiter". Some late competition to EVGA 750i FTW.

    edit: nv, they already do, just the intel version came a little late.

    I prefer the memory speed of intel boards better than SLi boards.

    The weak point of the 750i chipset is 4 sata ports.
    And since I'm using AMD cpu, it will be the 750a, I want it at least support 125 watt CPU, but it doesn't.
    I got 3 HHDs, and 1 Sata samsung dvd drive. And I will need another HHD soon..., and a Bluray.
    750a is a failure, I'm not sure about the 750i though :).

    750i has dual 8x slots for SLI doesnt it?

    this board seems like its going to be very overpriced for its performance.

    What about the optical drives, I still see a ton of them with IDE (including mine), heck I only recently knew they already had SATA optical drives when my brother bought an HP one.

    With all the rumours of Nvidia leaving the chipset scene, I would hesitate to buy anything with Nvidia chip on it. True MB do not need so regular updates as 3D cards, but still, lack of support is not a nice situation to be in. And whats with the naming, follow the leader I guess, Evga allready started it with its FTW nonsense :wtf:

    Those rumors are not only baseless, but also false. The last time DigiTimes reported these rumors, NVIDIA came out and quashed them. Don't base your purchase decisions on "someone leaving the scene". Even if a company leaves a certain market, it has to honor its commitments with warranty, service, software updates, etc.
