I like that case!

Let me know what you think of that mobo, that GD80 is actually the one i was looking at if i decided to upgrade to i7. I've been having the urge to get some near gear lately but i just don't know what. My Antec 300 still needs replacing for something bigger...

Eww, G15 keyboard. I had one for a while. It's a nice concept, but the keys are mushy as hell, there's virtually zero tactile response. And the orange backlighting is fugly.

The g15 isn't too bad. The keys are kind of small though.

@ Doc.

The case is very nice and easy to do cable management. Also, the GD80 is a VERY nice board. I was lucky enough to score it and a 860 together for $320. I love the layout and colors, it comes with a billion accessories and the bios is pretty nice too. The guy I bought it from did some extensive tests on it and the chip, so as soon as I get my venomous-X bracket fixed this thing is going to 4.4ghz for daily use.

The GD80 is now at the top of my list if i decide to go i7.

You wont be disapointed with the GD80. This is my first MSI board and I'm very much impressed. The layout is excellent and the features are robust. I was afraid I'd be let down after coming from a rampage extreme, but this board has not let me down yet.
