Hi all, My asus P5N SLI died hard over the weekend. I've been contemplating going i7 for a while so i figured "what the heck?" I've purchased the evga 9800gtx and so far I've been impressed by the performance and the level of support. My questions: 1) With all of the bios updates needed, would purchasing a new board, say around Frinday, include the updates? 2) With the review posed by extrememtech http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,2845,2340770,00.asp I was wondering, what caused the performance gap with the ASUS? 3) WHat are the usual temps when running on air at room temps? How does this impact with OCing on this board? Thank you all for your responses. I know I'll be going with the EVGA but i really need to clear up a couple of questions. I tempted to go with the ASUS but I've been burnt by sub par products from them before. oh and the article has a setup very similar to what I'm looking at. except the card which i'll keep.
