Can't wait to see this board. Too bad its ETA is just "Late Nov", for only $130 too (where the Asus is going from $150 to $200 at Newegg).

Six inches to the right.
Okay, so the SSP is out, what about the IGP? The only reason I'd buy an Nvidia motherboard is for the integrated graphics. Any word on a release date for that?

I'd rather wait for some reviews.

I wouldn't take a posting by Lynn Computer of a board with an ETA to be the spoken word... They had posted the Epox M762A (Dual socket A board) as going to be available in like February and I never even saw one anywhere until July. They tend to post stuff on their web site very, very early, so don't get your DIMM's in a knot.

I'd be careful guys and let some reviews come out first. You don't want any nasty surprises like 8x agp not working (first rev of 9700) or PC2700 ram "ready" but not working (last spring, KT333) and STILL no jadec standard for kt400 ram (but KT400 are pc3200 ready!)... LOL I'm cautious after what happened to me last spring with Corsair and 2700 ram and a still smoking off the line kt333.

waiting saves you $ and pain...

ABIT here I come...

Well by the time you get the stable setup that you wanted, there's something else you want that's better, causing you more pain :(
Still, I've stayed away from upgrading for four years, wonder if I should wait some more ;) (Hmm...thinks about those Hammers and DDR-II :D)
