The different users daring enough to try it are pretty positive in 
general, but it also means keeping up with de -dev and -commits list to 
see relevant patches and instructions floating by.

I ordered a new Mobo based on Nvidia 730i(Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H) as 
well, but as I'm not having a TV which can be driven through HDMI/DP or 
DVI it's not of much use yet. I got it for the reason that my current 
board starts to feel slow and is continually having a 80 to 100% load 
when playing video.
