The MSI 890GXM-G65 is an interesting board in that it has the features to be among the best in the business with the support for both USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps and Active Phase Switching in both Linux as well as Windows. The bundle is rather lackluster...

Groundbreaking? No. Unprecedented? Not even close. A nice increase in performance all the while pushing prices down? Definitely. Things can get a bit crowded on a m-ATX motherboard with full size video cards. AMD is milking the Athlon...
