The Verdict:
With pretty good performance, average features and decent BIOS tweaking the MSI 785GM-E65 is better than many budget boards.

The 785GM-E65 is a Micro-ATX form factor motherboard with dimensions of 24.4 by 24.4cm. It is packed with solid capacitors for longer life, stability and improved overclocking potential.

The AM3 socket supports AMD’s Phenom II range of processors including its high performance 140w CPUs. The MOSFETs have a heatsink that is directly linked to the NB heatsink by a single heatpipe, the Northbridge chipset used is the AMD 785G that includes the ATI HD4200 DirectX 10.1 IGP. The HD4200’s core is a 55nm processor that is clocked at 500MHz; the IGP also has a dedicated ELPIDA J11168A5E 1Gbit DDR3 memory chipset that runs at 1333MHz next to it.

The board holds one PCIe x1 slot, one PCIe x16 slot and two standard PCI slots. Take note in the picture that above the first PCIe slot there is a small red switch; that switch is there to help end-users to increase the CPU FSB directly to reach higher performance and skip any complicated overclocking settings in the BIOS.
