Nope, no MSI parts. Oh well. If they had more mid range products in a better color scheme they might earn my business.

I'm not to much of an MSI fan, like i am with AMD's graphic cards. I'm wondering when your going to do a contest for an Radeon HD 7870 graphic card again. I'm looking into buy an asRock X79 mother board.
Nice article for the ones with MSI products.
