Windows 7: Upgrade advice

That stinks when a bad board comes in for sure! I was asked to troubleshoot a friend's case when he had one board after another bad until switching models! The first board on the last build died in only a few days and why I went with a different make for the new one to see it ruined by a bad supply?

Newegg is great on rmas so you should see the new one come in rather fast when getting the number you need. But the bad board is always a headache to start with! Sorry to hear you had to go through that.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Yeah, I read all the reviews and they said the board was fine, except for one idiot who tried to use the integrated video that doesn't exist on the Core i7 and then blamed the motherboard. So I think it was a just a fluke, hopefully next week I'll have a positive update for you.

In the meantime, I've setup a temporary computer with myself using my old parts and Vista Ultimate x64 so at least I'll have something.
