when you tested the MSI board with latest BIOS, how much does the multiplyer change in turbo mode? my i5 only goes up by 1.

that's very, very low price, won't be surprised if a few end up on the bay the day after.

If I was building a new rig that wasn't full out nuts, I'd grab them.

However since I've a Core i7 in my system at the moment, I'm happy enough.

Does anyone know the difference between the GD80 & GD65?

Extremely tempting, but if I am not mistaken, there are no CPUs available for these boards yet?

Think I will have to try and buy one! Still not decided over i5 or i7 but I guess I can always sell the board if i do go with i7!

Maybe intel should do the same offer with the CPUs!

Personally I'd buy the board then sell it on Ebay/forums for profit if your not planning on going i5

Makes sense doesn't it guys? sell it for a 20 or 30 pound profit

Think I shall be treating the ol' superego to a GD80. At least if it's crap I can probably get what I sold for it.

My bank account hates you bindi!

But I suspect my inner geek will love you

Tempting but with the processors being a tad expensive, not forgetting the need for new ram I think I'll give it a miss this time around

When will the boards appear on the websites, at 2pm ?

I want to build a new comp and this is a good opportunity to get a cheap board.

limited to one board per customer
Does that mean I can't get one of each?
