save your cash go for a 780i or better chipset from a different company.

Summary: This board was a mistake I never intend to make again. At stock settings it works ok. If you intend to overclock like most people who would buy this board ( as it is marketed as an enthusiast board)...dont. You cannot run 4 dimms of ram without increasing the voltage for the north bridge which means it doesn't even really work with stock settings.
Summary: After getting this product and spending a few DAYS trying to get it working, I did some back-research into the brand XFX and found that their boards are well below reliable. I needed to get the nForce 750i SLI board to replace the board I had in previously, which was EVGA Branded, and the XFX was the closest I could find. However, the board was new and unopened but was already faulty. Have had nothing but dramas since the second I installed the board into the computer.
Summary: If your board works fine than you have nothing to complain, but if your board ever become defective in the warranty period prepare for one of the worst technical support experience. Once you start a support ticket the technicican would ask you to do all type of ridiculous test and not give you rma number they run you in circle even though you know for sure its the board.
Summary: Their shipped-with BIOS is very poor, and it's a known issue. Updating the BIOS is job one, but in order to get access to it, you have to fill out a form and open an "account" with them. After doing so, they force a "validation" process on you, the end of which results in the website confirming validation, and then summarily refusing to allow you to download the file, asking you, again, for "validation".
Summary: Works fantastic, installed without a hitch! Much better and smoother play then my old Motherboard. My old gigabyte Mobo always gave me compatibility issues with my RAM and Video card. I bought this Mobo for its stability, and I am running smooth sailing now!
Summary: This board looks nice; that's about it. It barely worked for me. Had a lot of freezing and blue-screens. Horrible for overclocking. Board died a few days ago. I now run a G31 chipset. AVOID XFX!
Summary: My original MOBO fried after 3 years of hard use, which was the 650i SLI. OS is Vista which picked up the "major" hardware changed without any problems = DID NOT have to re-format hard drive! Only reason I gave a 4* is less headers (pins) on MOBO for additional USB / Firewire. My case came with USB / Firewire in front and I added a card reader w/ USB / Fire wire ports. The 650i handled all of this. MOBO still has many USB / Firewire in back, so far no issue.
Summary: This is a GREAT motherboard! I am so impressed. (AS A SIDE NOTE: THIS BOARD DOES FIT THE PENTIUM 4 SERIES AS LONG AS IT IS SOCKET 775) Having gone with pretty run-of-the-mill motherboards in the past, perhaps some of my enthusiasm comes from the initial shock any overclocker will feel...but this motherboard really does rock!!! The overclocking features are MORE THAN ENOUGH for most moderate overclockers.
Summary: i get this board after my EVGA 780-sli fail to reconize any raid item when post for my sorprise this board was one of the most stable board (for the price) based on nvidia nforce 4 chipset ,its not a strongest overclocker but its a great sli solution. never fail,no matter what system used i got with win 7 x64 and i love it. 100% recomended.
