Hmmm, need my Bing bux so I have to pass on that.
So far my only issue is that my onboard audio isn't working. Read up on it and it seems to be an issue with the VIA audio and jack detection so I can't use my regular headphones. I have a gaming headset that has USB connections so I am using that in the meantime until the driver is upgraded, but I can see how that would be an issue for some.
