Default Christmas.....................................

Okay Christmas is coming up, well like 2 months but w.e. I'm asking for a EvGa A1 680i mobo and q6600 processor.

I WANT the GO version but I don't wanna risk it with newegg cause its a 50 50 chance, where should I get it?

I live in the US, also newegg has the a1 right? or is that a 50 50 chance also?

oor
should I wait and new stuff with prob come out?/

I'm upgrading from my current rig in my sig, just processor in mobo.
later on I'll get a better video card.

Apparently all are g0's now, unless you are really unlucky.

I'd wait for the new motherboards to finally arise properly though, since it'll be more worth it in the end

Yeah, the 680i was a good SLI board before, but it's sort of not worth it anymore. You'd be better off with a P35 or X38 board. I know newegg has gift certificates, you could just ask for one of those:
https://secure.newegg.com/Newversion...ertificate.asp

And yeah, just order it from newegg, and RMA it if for some reason you don't get a G0. Newegg has amazing customer service.

okay, but aren't those really expensive. I'm not looking for the best computer out there, just wanted a upgrade since AMD is all I ever had and they are starting to piss me off.

Wanted to try intel.

Some of the P35 boards are a lot cheaper than the 680i boards...some are under $100. This is an excellent one:
