Default 790GX Showdown: Gigabyte vs. MSI

With the release of the Phenom II processors, the demand for motherboards powered by the 790GX chipset has never been greater. Besides the ability to use the latest and greatest AMD CPUs, they are feature-rich, support CrossFire and Hybrid CrossFire and offer a capable IGP with digital outputs all this at prices that won't break the bank.

In this review, we examine the Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H and MSI DKA790GX Platinum motherboards their strengths, weaknesses, and most importantly how they compare to one another. The two boards are based around the same 790GX and SB750 chipsets and sport similar features, so it will interesting to see which board distinguishes itself, and whether it will do so in a positive manner. It is likely we will find only minor differences, but either way, it will give us insight about what approaches the two manufacturers take in design and implementation, and how this affects the overall user experience.
