I love my Abit and dont want anything else for the next gen cpu's of Intel. Abit's website never has any current news about the 975x series or whats in store for Conroe. I hope they dont leave us in the cold.
From my understanding, the only thing you're really missing out on is true Crossfire support and the "guarantee" from Intel that the 975x will support all future dual-core CPUs. I only upgrade every 3 years or so and by that time, usually everything needs to be replaced - so I figured why bother waiting on the 975x as I don't need Crossfire either.
Ahh K, Yea I bought my AW8 because I didn't want dual PCI-E x16 slots. I know alot of reviewers slammed the board because of its lack of dual gfx support. Now its just the wait for the 940's and 930's to show up .
