    I don't think you got the joke.
    PCIe Express 2.0 = Peripheral Component Interconnect Express Express 2.0

    This MOTHERboard looks like a cheap hack. Look, a x16 slot (pinout) with only a x1 socket. Yuck. Cheapmofos.

    A fatherboard wouldnt have any sockets on it! Only plugs. Pretty incompatible with all the hardware out there!

    it could be like, a board with all the hardware integrated on it so you just plug it into the motherboard and it's like a sandwich :laugh:

    Personally I really like the Northbridge cooler on this, it looks acutally good.. considering the EGA 750i FTW uses the crappy 780i Northbridge.. and this motherboard has Solid Caps, it might acutally be a good Overclocker!... besides the somewhat oddities.. like 2 IDE ports which were pointed out.. i see no FDD header, only 4 SATA's, and the odd RAM Slot color, which looks like it was made for AMD's dual channel not Intels which is 1/2/1/2 whereas AMD's is 1/1/2/2

    I own'd a 680i,750i FTW, 780i, and now a 790i.... and none of them "Sucked" i really loved all of them... maybe not the "best" but OCing was simple and easy for beginners like me

    I love my EVGA 680i, I would like to step up to a 2.0 pci-e board, but not worth it for just that.
    The EVGA FTW, is about the same thing, so not real sure what this board has that makes it stand out?

    Awesome color scheme, though. If I had the money I'd buy one of these just to fool around with Nvidia's lower end cards from ages ago.

    That's right. SLI'd 6200s.
