Thoughts on MSI 880GMA-E45 AM# Mobo Tags: Motherboards Product Last response: January 19, 2011 1:01 PM in Motherboards Share HankB99 January 18, 2011 9:17:40 PM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It's part of a Newegg Shell Shocker coupled with 4GB G.Skill RAM for $75 (after $20 MIR.) Seems like a pretty good deal. It has a couple of my punch list items - 6GB SATA and USB 3.0. Onboard video is nice too. I'm not looking for a gaming machine. I just want something faster than my Socket 939 Athlon X2 3800+. This looks like just the ticket!
