Default My 680i just died!

Its not even 4 months old yet! It cost me 79.99 as well! Everytime I buy something from PC world it seems to break. Also when I purchased it the man behind the till was adament that it would fully support 45NM CPUs, it won't support 45NM quads and barely works with my E7200. Anyway I turned on my PC today, I was greeted with a blank screen. I have tried another motherboard and that worked fine. So if I can get them to refund it or replace it, which board would be a good replacement. My PC spec is in my sig. Thanks.

Move upto the 750i and beyond. Go with EVGA this time. You can't beat their customer support, setup-up program and RMA service.

That's what you get for going with an nVidia chipset

If you're not using SLI, get an Intel chipset. They're better in pretty much every way, no argument.

You might as well. You're more than capable. You'll get such a huge jump in improvement.

Go with an Asus P5Q. It's a very reliable board.

i have the same mobo, and my E7200 works fine with it.
from what i have heard the XFX warranty takes forever to replace your board.
