    Bought mine from him a couple of months ago. No issues no problems. Got the AO3 revision, he is now selling the A04.
    Steve B's is a good deal if the warranty is transferrable.
    If you do buy from autdirect there check which revision it is.

    Guys the P180 in the hexus review had to remove the fan in the psu section to make room for the cabling. After looking round, the Tagan 530w psu they used has dimensions of 150x86x160. The dimensions for the galaxy are 150x86x220, so I've got grave concerns that the galaxy simply won't fit in that chassis, as its 60mm longer, even with the fan removed. Has anybody tried? apparently the fan to be removed can't be used on another fan bracket in the case either as its too big, which is disappointing but not prohibitive. So if the fan has to be removed to make room for the psu + cabling, is there an issue with cooling?

    well..

    I'm happy with mine but as you point out any chance you get () people do seem to have problems with 680i boards.

    I think the EVGA was always the best option but with the revision you were talking about it will be even better.

    ..and you get a 10 year warranty which never hurts.

    I am running 2x 8800GTX sli on an Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus. Monitor - Dell 2407. I am using beta forceware 101.41 and getting stock 3dmark06 scores of 12900 under vista ultimate 32bit. More work to do on the drivers as they are currently not optimised.

    Everything is running fine... Nice motherboard too.
