lol. ya I guess my angle on this entire situation has been letting the GPU choose my mobo.
I think i'm going to take a breather from purchasing until after xmas. I see the 780i boards are selling at a RETARDED price due to high demand. I particularily do not like NewEggs stance on changing prices on the fly due to demand... you need to wonder if the prices are sticky on the way down once demand decreases. I am always weary of "black box" type pricing models that react alittle too quickly to consumer demand.... so I think I will wait for demand to settle.
But totenkopf, I really like your viewpoint on this. You put up great arguments for teh x38... and are helping confuse the hell out of me when I was 90% sure I wanted an SLI board. *shakes fist*
