Awesome, the joys of PC gaming :*(

Upside is I contacted tech support and they said they would have customer service contact me back about sending a replacement. Hopefully I hear from them soon.
That sucks

Well... if you end up having to replace it, dont focus on getting one specifically with a pcie 3 slot as it really isnt anything more than the 2 since nothing out there really bottlenecks with the 2. Maybe a couple years from now it will be different, but by then it will be time to upgrade again anyways.

Oh... btw...

Anyone getting a PS4.... dont know if you have noticed, but the games launch on the 12th, 3 days before the console. So you could very well pick up the games ahead of time and the console on release night.

yeah the pcie3 was really just an added bonus to the board. It wasn't anything I was seeking out.

I looked up the warranty, its 3 years parts and labor, so they should be sending me a replacement board. Hopefully sooner than later.

The primary pcie slot works still, so I can still play games, just no SLI for me yet. Sucks having the second gpu, and not being able to use it. But I guess its better to find out now, than 2.5 years from now when the warranty is expired.

Got got contact by customer service and they sent me an RMA form, thats the good news. Bad news is that they say theuy wont send me a new board until the recieve my bad one, so I'll be out of a PC the entire process! I'm trying to sway them on this, if I cant, I'm not sure what I'll do. I might buy a new MB and sell the replacement on ebay when I get it. I cant go weeks without a PC.

I played some BF4 last night, its fun, but I keep getting crashes which makes me lose my XP

I'm hoping they do an update on the game or the nvidia drivers soon.

Totally... Kinda thinking I might do the same and go cancel my gamestop preorders or tell them to match the offer.

Is it only release titles? Or does it count for pre-orders too?
Just wondering since really the only ones I would want aside from the already pre-ordered are Infamous and Watch Dogs.

I gave up my game consoles when PC's started reaching Pentium level. But, my favorite game of all time is the "Black & White" series. I love playing "GOD". lol.

So... i was weak and broke down and bought BF4 for PC... and
O
M
G



That game is even better than the beta was. I mean in the beta I was impressed by the destruction increase from 3 as well as the graphics. The full version BLOWS IT AWAY. Everything (aside from the server crashing which was patched sunday) is freakin awesome. The leveling system, weapon system, balance etc... all awesome. The maps are brilliant and have so many doors and ways to move around that it feels completely like a rewrite from the last release. SOOoooo worth it!

BF4 is definitely better than 3. It feels much more balanced. Its still not bad company 2 quality in my eyes, but its a lot of fun. Mix the BC2 gameplay with the BF4 destruction and graphics and it might be perfect. It would be nice to have some legacy maps too.

I'm snowren24 on Origin and in game if you're looking for someone to play with.

Maybe its time to upgrade your OS and/or your video card. XP is an extremely outdated OS, especially for gaming. Upgrading is the thing we have to do, if we want to play the latest and greatest games.

XP? I must be an old timer. XP to me is AD&D! They're using that term in the video game realm as well?
