This review is from: MSI 785GM-E65 AM3 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
A very well-made board for light to medium use, though I'm quite sure it could handle anything I could throw at it. I have two of these, one for the wife who mostly uses browsers and e-mail, and the other as a HTPC. The home theater setup is a little more demanding. Sideport memory is great when you figure out what it is, and I have a Powercolor 3450 512 MB video card running a 47" HD TV flawlessly.
Being a micro-ATX board, real estate is cramped.
Phenom X4 955 processor, 4GB DDR3, PCI wireless N adapter and PCI-E X1 TV card, WD 750 Caviar Black hard drive, ASUS DVD burner. Using HDMI on Powercolor card to run TV, simple mini-stereo cable to music system. Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit.
