MSI 785GTM-E45


$84.99 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very easy to install - integrates smoothly within existing PC setups with "plug-and-play" functionality. Excellent overall performance at the price point - manual over-clocking can improve speeds more than 90% with minimal sleep/hibernation issues. High-speed LAN connectivity is ideal for dedicated gaming machines - can be easily supplemented with high-end processors for an optimal gaming configuration.

The Cons:Several users report negative experiences involving DOA units - motherboard will be completely non-functional out of the box and require several returns to secure a reliable unit. Large amount of SATA ports (6) seems counterintuitive for a media-geared motherboard - relatively small amount of memory ports (2) may cause user frustration.

 The MSI 785GTM-E45 is a Micro ATX motherboard that supports AMD processors. It features a fast gigabit network interface for high-speed LAN connections and also features APS technology to save energy through controlling the power supply.
