    me thinks that AMD is just waiting till the end of it all to drop the ball that all the RD790 boards you've seen running actually have a Phenom in them :)

    OK, it sounds comparable to the Intel X38 chipset but can it do better :confused: what can a mother board with the RD790 chipset handle :confused: will it do SLI or just Crossfire :confused:

    Just crossfire, you'll have to wait for any nvidia chipsets with Phemom support to do SLI.
    That may be some time yet.

    I like ATI but everyone knows that if you want power then you need a few GeForce 8800's in your PC so it is a toss up for me :sigh: if i was going to build some super graphics PC then i would wait for the Nvidia chipset but if i just wanted a good pc then an Intel based board with an X38 chipset or an AMD quad core with this chipset would be just fine with me when they become available :)

    You shouldn't complain about you board :nono:
    If you see my PC, it is way older then yours and that it works awsome for doing AutoCAD 2007 2D and 3D drawings for my college assignments :clap:
    So sure get a cool board when you can afford but also be proud of what you have now :grr:
