    this would do great for a high end HTPC with gaming capabilities.

    That is so cool. I would never consider buying one and it's almost certainly going to cost more than the board and GPU would separately, but it looks great.

    I'm still surprised that no other companies (that I know of) have successfully made a motherboard look as good as the P67/Z77 Sabertooths (saberteeth?)

    as with motherboards with built in components like GPUs. they are built for the compactness. this would be great for a small HTPC case that can do so gaming as most HTPC boards can only just that. not even worth gaming on.

    Unfortunately they should have made ITX or MATX that would be awesome!

    2 GPUs will take motherboard space. there no two ways about that. you have seen the size of the GPU board on its own. let alone two of them.

    I can't see how that has sufficient cooling for 2 HD7970s although the PCIE power along the bottom suggests something beefy. Very interesting.

    I like the colour scheme. But this way you cannot upgrade the videocards. Should put the colour scheme on some lower end ROG boards or something IMHO.
