It is interesting to announce that I m getting prepared to try the new-egg board with claimed high tech facilities. my main concern is always the better board that can get me the benefit for the 3 way SLI with make 16 by dual 8 (16X8X8).in my total expertise till today I found only few number of the i7 broad that fully supports the updated and highly upgraded feature of i7 processor fully and finally. I was using the GPU board with starched my pocket with $400 high for its flaws. Its not a budged board and also port factor is missing. Now I am going to try the EVGA which has 9 Sata ports with 3rd degree GPU feature which sound quite good when we talk about the mother boards.
But a big trade off here is that I has only 12 GB Random Access memory and only posed two year warranty, in spite of the mentioned lacking I think overall board is ok for regular use. it also contains an extra cooler blower making it different in look from the other. Its internal specs are normal but not given much importance in the market because of the reduce Ram. Speed is good with above average performance with regular clocking rate.
Many users especially with the fixed budgets can go for this option if they are having external ports problem with their current mother board. built in heat sink for keeping it cool during the processing but mouth of words say that its hard to install this board I the current system because entire structure other than the external ports need to be changed and configured again according to the new requirements. But I would love o experience it myself once to trace out its exact performance and value. The overall board is not too heavy for system and wallets
The rest of the build:
CPU: i7 920
Case: Antec 1200
PSU: Antec CP-850
RAM: 6 GB OCZ Plat
HD: 640 GB WD Caviar w/ 32 MB cache
Fan/heatsink: Cooler Master V8(based on reviews, it should work fine, but will be hard to install)
