You will love that MSI mobo and it has just the right features to future proof you for a good while. Excellent choices and I'm sure the pictures of the build will be great.

I figured it was something like that. I'm definitely envious of your build.

Nice mobo. I'll probably use something similar when I build my dream system later this year (I hope). I have been disappointed with the mediocre lifespan and lousy documentation of Asus mobos, so it's time for a change.

It's kind of weird that they keep putting PATA and PS/2 mouse/keyboard connectors on motherboards, even really new ones like yours. PATA seems likely to stick with us for a long time, until everyone's old IDE and PATA optical drives have died, I guess. But when was the last time you owned a keyboard or mouse with a PS/2 connector?

What I like about the MSI mobo is the logic behind the placement and angle of all the headers. It's a well thought out board with just enough legacy to help out like you say. Anyone wants to see this mobo installed check out my pictures under my albums FYI.

I'm Thankful for the ide. I have an MSI 890GXM. It only has 5 sata headers with 1 taken up by the case headers. I bought a IDE CD/DVD to conserve on the sata connectors.

When you look at my specs and see my pic's you will see I had the very same issues and had to think my mobo and all my system spec's out very carefully. This MSI 890FXA-GD70 solved all my needs after I installed two sata/usb PCIe adapters. My system is crazy complicated and it was a mind bender to get it all right. Can't wait to see your build with this fantastic board !

Linne, I've already looked at your album it looks great! What pcie sata card did you get and did you install it in a pcieX16 slot? I've considered the same but don't know if that will make my 5770 run at x8.

EDIT: never mind. you have the fx model with several pcie slots. I just have 2 pcie x16 slots (X16 or X8 X8), no other pcie slots.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
