Summary: The MSI P55-GD80 LGA 1156 motherboard is a deluxe item, but beware. I got one new in the box, and it wouldn't flash the bios, and this is an old board, so the user would need to flash the bios initially, in most cases. The bios flash utility was no good. But i have tried a few of the p55 motherboards by various manufacturers, and the boards are old. When the board is a p55A model, with sata 6 gig capability, then the board is newer, and usually works out.
