    Waste of money. Unless she was running QUAD SLI etc.

    Don't see why anyone would get a $700 MOBO to run SLI alone and a single processor.

    I think it deals with the fact of her profession that she wants the latest and greatest. Plus, her system runs the home- she teaches online with a local college, plus holds a degree in engineering and uses the same system for that as well.

    I feel the I7 extreme at $1000 is a waste plus dual 59xx but some have to have it (021) :P just poking you 021-
