I'd take it off your hands if I had a need for it man. I have a quick question though. What is the highest bus speed you got with this?

277 was the highest it would go for me. I factored out the ram and CPU, the board would work fine at 277, at 278 it wouldnt even POST. But... if your using a BE you still have tons of room. Solid board. :rockout: .

Everything except the board. :D Whenever I sell stuff, its usually at a very nice price. I'm a little too anxious to bargain battle with people. I cut to the chase, and get things sold. Someone buy this board already!

Yeah, but still! In two days to sell ALL those products, as fine and valuable as they might be.. I don't need a 780 board, but I may have needed some of the other stuff. Gosh, we need a memo system for whenever you post a "For Sale" thread, I think :D

Hah, just make sure to check the FS area often, I do all the time, even when I'm not buying. I always know people looking for stuff. And yes, its a 790GX.

Edit: Weer, I looked at your system specs.... your Q6600 won't OC at all on a EVGA board?! You sure its not due to all 4 dimms being filled? Have you tried with just 2 dimms in use? EVGA boards and G.Skill memory are usually OC friendly. Just a thought. :p
