Get affordable graphics and computing performance with Micro-Star's KA780G motherboard. Based on AMD's 780G and SB700 chipsets, this ATX form-factor board is designed to support single- and multi-core socket AM2+ and AM2 processors including Phenom, Athlon 64 and Sempron CPUs.

Easily gain more power with an easy-to-use overclocking switch which allows support for 140W CPUs for future upgrades in processor capabilities. Dominate your applications and games with up to 8GB of DDR2 memory fitting into four 240-pin slots with dual channel support and 2600 Mhz Hyper Transport technology for increased performance. Onboard Gigabit Ethernet LAN means that you can connect to other networked devices without running into a bottleneck.

The integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 chipset can be augmented with a PCI-Express x16 graphics card to achieve Crossfire-linked performance at a fraction of the price. Video can be output through the DVI, D-Sub or HDMI ports and accompanied by eight channels of sound from the Realtek ALC888 audio chipset. Five 3Gb/s SATA connectors give you the ability to store massive amounts of data locally with several RAID configurations possible for extra security and high-speed performance and an eSATA port provides the same capabilities for an external drive. A half-dozen USB 2.0 ports give you additional options in connecting and expanding your system.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board only one issue

Pros: Fast and great for desktop work. I have 4gb setup and WinSAT scores are great. I would recommend this MB.

Cons: Has sleep issues several PCIe cards are not waking up. I place the cards on my previous MB and they resume fine on Windows 7 SP1.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I used this board to build an HTPC/Web Design PC.

Quick Specs:
Windows 7 64-Bit
8 Gig DDR2 800 G.Skill Memory
1 TB Hatachi Hard Drive
MSI Radeon HD 4870 1GB (Using the boards Hybird CrossfireX)

I am running two Hanns.G 24inch 1080i displays and a 42inch Sharp for home theather viewing with this setup.

I love this board, works like a charm.

Cons: Maybe it's me, maybe it's my PC Case, but my connectors will not fit on the little tabs for the power switch, the hdd lights, etc. They fit loosely and if I put the power switch on, i can't fit another connector next to it, so I have no signal lights, first time I have ever run into this. ?? Maybe because my case is old?

Other Thoughts: I will continue to use MSi. I haven't bought one of their boards in like 4 years, I've been using laptops and this is my first home PC build in awhile, and I am glad they still make quality products. Just like back in the day when Windows XP was the new thing.

2 out of 5 eggsMsi not up to snuff

Pros: Board worked thats about it.The on board sound works well oddly enough.

Cons: The board is really narrow.Long and narrow more like the width of a micro board than a full size board. I have a Nvidia 9800 gtx + video card so 1 pci slot is total blocked. The lay out of the boad is the worst i have seen the sata plug locations are blocked off by the back of the video card. I have a antec 900 case so i had to move every thing around but the bottom pci slot is very close to the power supply.I put a new sound card in the bottom pci slot and could not get it to work.I got an older sound card and that did not work either .So checked it out and the bottom pci slot is bad after 1 week. i am not go to bother with RMAing the board just going to toss it in the trash ordered an asus board to take its place.On an older asus board the 5000+ be was clocked at 3.6 i cant keep this one stable at that speed . I was however able to get it stable at 3.1.

Other Thoughts: I got this board for my child's pc so i seen this one for 77 bucks free ship so i thought i would give it a try. If your looking for a Mid level board this one really is not a good choice there are a lot of boards for 10-20 bucks more to make your build a lot smoother.

5 out of 5 eggsNice board - buy it

Pros: Very well motherboard. First time MSI user but I think is better than any other brand. (Believe there is an upgrade path to AM3 socket via MSI bios update) I like the on-board button that clears CMOS value. I am sold to MSI boards given this board's values.

Cons: Overclock Jumpers do not work well as I had thought.

1 out of 5 eggsfirst bad msi board

Pros: Nice board, great layout. Very solid and the power, reset, and cmos buttons are a nice touch.

Cons: DOA, after reading other reviews this board has problems.

Other Thoughts: I have always used MSI boards and have never had any problems. Hoping my replacement board will have a longer lifespan,... anything is better than DOA. Will update after i receive the replacement hopefully better results.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works fantastic with my setup... for a fairly basic video setup with the onboard and the lower end saphire card, it does just about everything i want and then some

Cons: only thing i can complain about is finding out whether or not its possible to use this system like a movie server, havent played around enough with multi-display to know if i can watch different movies on different displays at the same time, using more than one form of media player, ie: winamp, power dvd, etc.

Other Thoughts: MSI KA780G mobo
AMD Athlon X2 7850 Kuma Black Dual Core
4gb Mushkin DDR2 1066
Saphire Radeon HD 3650 512mb running crossfire
Cooler Master extreme power plus 500w
WD 250 gb
RAIDMAX Sirius ATX-701S Case

5 out of 5 eggsDo Not Hesitate to Buy!!!

Pros: Great motherboard once you update the BIOS. Since update have experienced "0" issues.

Cons: Motherboard was troublesome without completing an immediate BIOS update.

Other Thoughts: Would not hesitate to buy this motherboard again and definitely recommend it to anyone who has the knowledge to properly update the BIOS. Been up for close to seven (7) months now without any glitches. Running Vista Ultimate 32 bit with a AMD 64x2 6000 (3.1), 4GB GSkillls RAM and an ATI Radeon HD4670 (512mb). Great inexpensive system which runs COD4 great!

2 out of 5 eggsupdate to initial review

Pros: see previous review by me

Cons: ok... after a day or so i found that this board refuses to allow me to tranfer files between drives whether it is from hdd to hdd, hdd to usb drive, usb drive to hdd. i have used 3 different os's (vista, xp pro, linux) i have tried changing usb ports, hdd's, even adding a usb card. no dice. the comp just hard locks every time about 30 seconds into the transfer. this is more than a little annoying. but its not a $300 board so i should have expected this cr@p. system is otherwise mostly stable. all problems im having i can link to this board after a little research.

Other Thoughts: why do companies only use quality control on the boards and parts no one can afford?
