    As per title, Geeks.com is offering "Asus/Pegatron IPMTB-TK Intel X58 SLI Socket 1366 mATX Motherboard w/Audio & LAN" for $134.99 + s&h.

    For those that are wondering, Pegatron appears to be ASUS's OEM branding. The motherboard comes in OEM/bulk packaging, but it is brand new. As per Geeks.com inventory tracking (via Evertek) there are 27 left in stock as of this posting.

    Note: The motherboard looks fine, although the power regulation circuitry does not look all that impressive. Truly a budget X58 motherboard. However, it is brand new and it supports SLI in mATX format at that.

    This board should help the i7's become more competitive price wise, very nice. Too bad I hate Geeks.com, but I wouldn't be buying it as I just picked up a GD-70. Should make a lot of people happy seeing this board though.

    No overclock, it looks exactly like the one thats in Gateway's Core i7 FX machine.


    Pure basic functionally

    My only problem here would be LAN/Audio drivers where would you get them?
