When Intel put out the QX9700 series, many discovered that this required a complete re-think on the way they think about their PC. Some went the SLI route, with the new 790i. We sell quite a few of systems in that line. But many users wanted something with great performance, top flight stability, and DDR3 RAM. This for the moment, puts Nvidia out of the picture and leaves our buyers looking for something more unique.
Our Part List:
Asus P5E3 Premium

Future proof design, with a forward looking board, great support, and TOP FLIGHT performance.
One thing that makes this board really stand out is that not only does Asus design it to get the most out of the X38 chipset, it's that they've also included a custom mounted 1GB Flash drive, with it's own built in Linux (between the second PCI-E and PCI slot). Before you boot, you can choose to boot Asus's Live OS, which has full WiFi support for the onboard card, network support, and email and web client, as well as diagnostic tools. I cannot tell you how handy this little tool can turn out to be. It's small touches like this one that make the P5E3 really stand out. It's been engineered from the beginning to have fantastic performance with all the polishing touches that help it stand out in a crowd.
