    That board doesn't run dual vid cards so no option in the future for a second card.

    Why does it have to be from that dealer? The newegg canada shipping on that board is free, and it's cheaper.
  4. I have a 10% rebate on motherboard at the store, plus if there's any problem with the mobo, they give me a new one and i don't have to send it back myself...
