Microstar International (MSI) is a leading manufacturer of quality computer components ranging from motherboards to graphics cards and laptops. This Taiwanese company has been in business since 1986 and has earned a good reputation for quality and excellence especially for its motherboards, one of which we will be reviewing today.
The MSI 785GM-E65 is based on the AMD 785G chipset and suports the new AM3 socket based Phenom II CPUs along with DDR3-1333. It comes equipped with 128MB DDR3 1333MHz IGP boost memory to accelerate onboard VGA 3D performance along with support for Hybrid Corssfire. For full specifications, please check MSI’s website.
MSI’s box art for this motherboard is standard and rather plain which isn’t surprising. The 785GM-E65 is a no frills motherboard yet with a decent amount of features that are listed on the box to attract and inform potential buyers.
Inside the box there’s a user’s manual, an overclocking guide manual, an IDE cable, a SATA cable, a DVD driver disc, a 4-pin molex to SATA power cable and an I/O rear panel shield.
