This looks like a fantastic deal. Just two important notes
1. Requires an ATX12V v 2.2 PSU (and maybe even more picky than that)
2. BIOS update to support Ivy Bridge not released (possible in the future but not guaranteed)
Newegg has been trying to offload these evga motherboards for months. First it was the microATX version for $30, now this one for $50. Every time I see them in the mailer I'm tempted but I would not recommend it.
The latest bios update is from 10/03/2011 !! So its quite obvious this will never have ivy bridge support.
Great rebate Companies:
Patriot Memory (4myrebate.com): 6 Weeks
Tiger Direct (4myrebate): 3 weeks
Rain-X (in house): 3 weeks
That mobo is Sandy Bridge only as well. Ah well, great deal for those who got in on the $100 Microcenter i5 processor!
Totally agree. I am hoping to find a good cpu soon. I am building a new system for my girlfriend. Trying to get her off of using laptops. Laptops sort of suck when you shoot on a DSLR. Cant expand beyond a 1tb hard drive in a laptop.
