5 out of 5 eggs Nice HTPC Board 04/08/2011

This review is from: MSI 785GT-E63 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Firstly, this is Rev. 1.2 of this Board Manufactured in Feb. of 2011. It is extremely stable, and has some of the latest features minus USB 3.0 & Sata 6 of which could be added when needed using a add on Card. The on board audio is the new 24-bit/192kHz (LossLess) and sounds as good if not better than my $90.00 HT Omega Sound Card. The on board Video gives you the option to draw up to 1024MB of System memory. Unless you're a serious Gamer, this is all you need for watching Videos & Hulu. If you want to read all of the updated spec's, go to the MSI web site and do a "search" for "785GT-E63". This all said, every feature is working as specified.

Cons:

None....I know exactly what I purchased.

Other Thoughts:

A couple of thought's for you people that are building your First Computer. In addition to using a DIY tutorial from a Wheaties Box, try to talk to someone who has built several systems. Google the Board Make and model to see any problems & solutions. Also, as the saying go's....RT$M. This is the First Manual I have seen that suggests to initially boot with ONE STICK OF RAM, in which was a "Known Issue" some years back. To hit the Power Button and have a successful trip to the Desktop, just hookup ONE of everything except for Optical Drives. Also, DO NOT Hookup any external USB Devices of any variety. To clarify this: One stick of Ram, One HDD, One Video Card if applicable. Another very important tip if you're using an existing HDD and want to elimininate any chance of a BSOD. Clear the CMOS and "Write Zero's" to the HDD. BY doing this, I have NEVER had a BSOD!!!! One last note, People moan about Not receiving Rebates. MSI stated 14-16 weeks. I received mine from them in less than 8.
