HELP: Building 1st PC! Need Help with 680i PLEASE :)

I’m going to build my own computer with the 680i motherboard, but I’m not yet sure which one to go with :).

Impact of Solar Flares and Mass GPS Outage

When posed the question “If solar flares cause extended GPS outages, do you feel you will be affected?” TigerNews visitors said overwhelmingly “No, I don’t use a navigation system.”

This was kind of a trick question, because it is possible that we will all be affected by a widespread GPS outage. Many more things than your car’s navigation system utilize GPS for a variety of reasons – including cellular telephone networks, traffic signals and more – including OnStar service, carrier tracking systems – and surely much, much more.
