If you are trying to build a new supercomputer for gaming, parallel processing, editing, or other intensive tasks and don't want any comprimise, then the Gigabyte G1.Assassin is the board for you.]

Not sure if I should do this, but I did : D

Board sounds great and I might pay that kind of cash for a board with an integrated Bigfoot Card and X-fi sound. I only wish it would come in 1155 Flavor.
