  • Conclusion: To be sure, we’d like to see MSI modernize the look of its UEFI BIOS to incorporate some of the user-interface design improvements of the last few years. It's a finishing touch that would make this cutting-edge board look and feel cutting edge. But overall, the 990FXA-GD80 is a reasonably priced, well-laid-out basis for an AM3+ system, whether you’re building a single-card basic performance system or a multiple-graphics-card extreme powerhouse.
  • Pros: Supports both CrossFireX and SLI, Good variety of both current and legacy ports, Inexpensive, versus competing boards
  • Cons: PCI Express card slots aren’t labeled to indicate bandwidth, BIOS supports mouse but isn’t graphical
