Hey guys a friend of mine is looking to build a new PC, right now he is out to sea on a military deployment, so aside from magazines that he may get every once in awhile he is a little behind on somethings. He has heard about the new M3N-HT Deluxe/Mempipe that is coming out some:

and he is interested in what various people may say how it compares to the M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi-AP

If guys have a better AMD AM2/AM2+ MB's, your ideas are welcome.

I've installed the M3A32 and find it to be not nearly as user-friendly and performance oriented as the Gigabyte 790 board(s).

Personally I use the GA-MA790FX-DS5 with a new AMD-9850.One of the best technical features is the BIOS update capability, it's a breeze.

I had previously been using the AMD-5600x2 and upgraded to the 9850 without issue! Nice board, easy to install. I have historically been an ASUS fan, but this 790FX series has gotten me out of my rut..... :kaola: 

I have found the ASUS-MA32* to be fussy about memory and timings among other trivial issues related to O.C'ing.

Both are great boards but I have found the Gigabyte to be superior, having no issues in 5 months of use.
