    Its a great motherboard, but it seems a little expensive. £200 ? That gigabyte board earlier this week was £85 and had everythign I needed.

    touch screen bios is a cool idea, but does anyone use a touch screen for a main desktop system? I doubt it really.

  • Alan

    I love MSI graphics cards, this is an excellent board, but that gigabyte Z68A has spolit me for money. £85 its a bargain. I could lose a few things on this one, such as dual x8, and a few ports, and that touch screen bios. if it saves me £115, makes sense.
