Ok I've been looking at the ASUS P5N32-E SLI LGA with the 680SLi chipset or for a mobo without SLi the Asus Maximus Formula or the GIGABYTE GA-X38-DQ6 LGA 775 Intel X38 (both with X28 intel chipsets). It seems to me that a lot of people are saying they're having a lot of problems with the Asus mobos and the BIOS. I was just curious if anyone had any input on these models/brands or whether or not SLi is important for future-ready systems?
I'd be lying if I said a particular brand never had a problem. Every brand has. ASUS is probably the most popular motherboard of choice. The more people use a particular brand, the more problems they will report. It's only natural.
Not sure about others, but DQ6 has dual bioses: main & backup. When the main bios is screwed up or corrupt, the backup will take over automatically & let you enter bios to update or just update from the bundled CD.
