Summary: Based on NVIDIA's new MCP 73 platform, the P6NGM is a mid-sized PCB. It supports all Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors; there are 2 PCI slots, 1 PCIe x16 slot for a discrete card, 2 memory slots, and 4 SATA ports. The P6NGM supports 1333 MHz FSB (officially) so all Penryn dual- and quad-cores should work fine. A 4-pin CPU power connector defies the new 8-pin standard. The onboard graphics is a GeForce 7050 solution--D-Sub and HDMI connects have been provided as well.
Conclusion: Despite the NVIDIA GeForce 7-series mGPU chipsets being the new kid on the block, our expectations for the MSI P6NGM were modest. As with most entry-level and mainstream motherboards, the P6NGM is a no-frills entry. 'What you see is what you get' is the topic of the day, and MSI pulls it off with ease here.
