looks like i won't be getting my rd600 after all. i was so looking forward to that board. well, looks as nVidia has cum up with their own "rd600". well, it's version to compete that is. yep, i'm talking about the 600i series chipsets. they will cum in 3 flavors for intel. 680i SLi, 650i SLi, & 650i Ultra (600a series for amd). as of now i believe i'll probably be getting the 680i version. i always purchase the best mb that's available. then u have the new dx10 version videocards from nVidia also. these two G80 cards (only two available on launch) are being named 8800 GTX (flagship) and the 8800 GTS. lots of new and great stuff cummin' from our friendly nVidia personnel in the future! sad times to amd/ati's newest x1950xtx cards too as this 8800 GTX completely dominates it in a single card solution compared to the x1950xtx in crossfire! u make the call. all of this should be available for purchase within the next week or two. get urs!?

Dominating 8800 vs x1950xtx Benches
the 600i series chipset mb's are core 2 duo and core 2 quad compatible and support the new 1333 MHz fsb and is aimed for the oc'er enthusiast. the 8800 series vid crds are 768mb & 640mb cards, support m$'s newest dx version 10, shader model 4.0 and crush every board out there especially in SLi mode where it really shines! look at those 2048 x 1536 rez benches! impressive & sold! just make sure u have a very good psu for these 8800 series cards. 450w psu for single solution and 800w for SLi. lol, time for that 1k watt pc power and cooling psu!
