    The msi890gxm-g65 got poor review in custom pc.

    Poor overclocker, poor value for money.

    I looked at the 890GX boards, and tbh I think they are pretty poor value for money Vs. the current 785G boards that you can pick up for a good £40-50 cheaper.

    Performance wise the 890GX boards offer pretty much nothing over the 785G, and the extra features they have, USB3/SATA3 aren't really needed. And most certainly aren't worth the price premium.

    Hence I went for a 785G in the end, and a lovely board it is too.

    Just my 2penneth.
