Summary: This motherboard performs very well and has a great interface in Windows. The bios gives you many functions to control your pc. Also if your into blue led it has 6 lites that intensify as the cpu increases use.
Bottom line - you can get more expensive but not better...

Summary: This motherboard was placed inside of my Dell Inspiron 580 which came with the Intel Core i3 550, 3200 MHz. This processor is so capable of reaching speeds of 4.2 and better. The original Dell Mobo is locked down. With the provided proprietary software, overclocking is a breeze. I have four separate Oc'ing settings, 1 for my gaming, 2 for my online selling activities and basic computing, and 1 for my 3d picture editing and 3d animation rendering.
Excerpt: Purchased this motherboard a short while ago, and have had an overall happy experiance. While there are many P55 motherboards in the market, with varying features, i felt that this met my needs best, for a reasonable price. While i was looking for a motherboard, i wanted one which had both SLI and CrossFire support, because if i ever switched from NVIDIA to ATI/AMD, or vice versa, and got two graphics cards, i wouldn't have to worry about one or the other not being...
Pros: SLI and CrossFire support, PCI - e 2 . 0 X8/X8 link speed, great overclocker, looks good
Cons: Overvolts/Undervolts CPU, strange issue with DVD drive and LAN, 2 year warranty
Summary: Intel'in yeni nesil Core i5 işlemcileriyle uyumlu olan P55 yonga setli anakartları normal şartlarda sadece ATI'ın CrossFire teknolojisine destek sağlıyor. Ancak tercihiniz NVIDIA'nın SLI teknolojisind en yana olacaksa özel modellere yönelmeniz gerekiyor. MSI'ın üst düzey özelliklerle donattığı P55-GD65 modeli bahsi geçen sınıfa giriyor.
