This review is from: BIOSTAR TA790GX XE AM3/AM2+ AMD 790GX HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: bought as a replacement for another board and very closely matched what was being replaced. pc able to boot with the processor that i originally had.
Cons: would not load OS completely with any hard drive that i used. i used ide/sata drives and nothing worked. it would hang on install screens, or boot screens with custom CDs. some live linux boots worked, but it was not intended to be a linux machine.
Other Thoughts: this was the first time that something purchased from new egg did not work out 100% for me. outside of the installation problems that i had with it, it seems like it could have been a very good board to use. i did not have any other processors to test with it, and it may have been a good idea to buy a brand new processor to use with it. unfortunately, it was part of a rebuild for someone else.READ FULL REVIEW
