This review is from: MSI 790GX-G65 AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
The on-board graphics works well for my music production machine and supports dual displays. (I am using the VGA and DVI ports, but assume you can use any combination of the three) I find everything else about the board pretty typical, solid construction, decent layout etc.
One TINY thing basically not worth mentioning - my on-board reset button doesn't work; it seems the center part of the plastic button that contacts the switch is jammed or something. Not worth removing the board from the case to inspect.
I have paired this motherboard with the Phenom II 955.
*for those interested in audio production/recording capability of this board/processor combination* I use the EMU 1616m PCI audio interface with FL Studio and with ASIO latency running at 3ms. (lowest available with the 1616m is 2ms) Mainly recording audio from bass guitar and drums as well as MIDI data from the drum and keyboard controllers.
Overall I find this board to be a relatively low cost base to a very capable and upgradable system.
