    Will the ASRock 865G-based board be the last one left on the market? I guess we will see in a couple of months. I was really surprised to see the BIOSTAR 775 G41 board gone.

    maybe it has something to do with chipsets no longer being made? hence companies can't find parts to keep producing boards.

    you might think so, but where is Asrock getting their relatively ancient 865G chipsets from then?

    My understanding is that Intel continues to to produce things like chipsets on older, depreciated, fab lines, because they are mostly pure profit at that point.

    The technology is 7 years old. Not a surprise its hard to find one. Its Core 2 which came out in 2006. Hey I loved my Q6600 GO to death until I saw it cant play the steinway piano in my DAW. I would play freestyle piano and more keys you pressed more the usage went up, until it goes to 100 percent red and audio pops out.

    Now with my upgraded Rig, I play the same piano going crazy on it and my percentages shows it takes avg 1 percent . thats 100x more powerful. thx

    Btw I get a 4fps difference lol I gained 4fps , going from Q6 @ 3.7Ghz in MW3 to what I have now. Soo games are GPU bound,,, CPU cant do what GPU does.

    They just happened to be the last stockpile which just never get sold out because the already low demand gets lesser and lesser every year.

    That's my guess anyway.

    Lol, the Intel one sure doesn't seem to have many buyers. You'd expect a satisfied customer or two to show up; I know most happy customers don't review things.

    here where I live is 10 times harder to find 1156 compared to 775 parts.

    I should stockpile 775 G41 mobos, they are needed for PC service, i hope biostar G41 would be available, last week i paid ~31e for it from the local importer, now waiting for new import

    Any info about shortage or stoped production (i hope not) is welcomed....
    Asrock is overpriced here
