    The price is not too bad for a good X58 board. Of course, it looks like on both the AMD and Intel sides that'll we need new motherboards to run Sandy Bridge or Bulldozer, so I would only buy a budget board today if I had any intention of upgrading afterwards.

    I don't have seen the price before.
    $199, It's a good price.

    Ya the price is pretty good for a quality X58 board. Depends on the features though, the ASUS P6X58D-E, for example, isn't much more, and it's an excellent board.

    What is this board's target market? Republic of Gamer series is for gamers and overclockers. Where does tihs one lie, that's the question.

    Eido, you mean new chipsets...... The current motherboards should absolutely be fine but I think 2011 brings new chipsets.
