Currently, the most hot topic in AMD platform is the new mid-end chipset 790GX+SB750.
790GX built-in HD3300 GPU which is more performance than HD3200 in 780G.
I believe this chipset combines with AMD dual/triple/quad core CPU can bring the higher C/P value.
Unlike 790FX has the advantage of CorssFire X16+X16, 790GX is positioned in mid-end.
It only supports X8+X8 CrossFire. However, the new SB750 and GUP HD3300, 790GX is still a great choice for end users.
This time I get is GIGABYTE MA790GP DS4H.
After 790GX launched, 3 tier one manufacturers all announced their 790GX products.
The price is around 160USD. As the price gap is small, the components, spec. and OC ability are the key factors.
