MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Motherboard Review

Rating: 8.5.

The MSI A88X-G45 Gaming is a handsome AMD A88X motherboard that sports a long list of features including triple graphics slots. That explains the ‘Gaming’ part of the name and as you would expect the A88X chipset means this MSI board supports the latest FM2+ range of Kaveri APU.

There is no doubt that the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming is a fine looking motherboard. The feature set is extensive which goes some way to justify the £95 inc vat asking price. There is no doubt that this is one of the most expensive and fully loaded FM2+ boards you can buy today.

    Great looking board, bit costly when most seem to be £30 less, but I guess if you wanted the best for your overclocking this is the one to get. Id rather get FX though for games.

    Everyone is making red and black boards now, all look the same – I wish they would all have their own styles like they did in the past. I dont even like Red and black ! (apart from my super hero costume)

    Seems like they are targeting the wrong market with the board. I dont know anyone who wants a 7850 and three graphics card slots! AMD lovers go for 8350 FX with graphics cards like that.
