Because i have two x58 boards. If i didnt have them i would have got SB and i find that me i7(on x58) pretty much keeps up with it. I would just like a gulftown 4 it coz i think ill be using it 4 ages. Looks like the 990x is out of the question. Did sumbody say u can get a 970 for $380? Where can i get it from. Thanks.
