The chipset used for this version is the best choice for AMD processors. With native dual display, it means you won't need the video card at first. But performance equivalent to a GeForce4 MX 440 will not be enough for hardcore gamers hankering for the latest 3D games. MSI will thus eventually need to add a next-generation video card.
MSI also offers the Mega 865, equipped, as its name implies, with the Intel i865 chipset, for those who want to go the Pentium 4 processor way.
