MSI wants you to get the most out of your motherboard so they have stuck an afterburner on it.  You won't have to worry about your fuel-air mix as it is all software but you will have a new way to overclock your graphics card.  The hardware monitoring interface is rather attractive and having various overclocking profiles available at the touch of a key is rather handy.  Does it have a shot at unseating the king of GPU OC tools, RivaTuner?  Read on at the Guru of 3D and find out.

The AGP slot has some serious staying power and the folks at VisionTek have ensured that it will stay around in old systems sitting around chugging on Distributed Computing projects and in low heat and noise situations like streaming video and recipe websites in the kitchen.  VisionTek has managed to convert an HD3650 into an AGP card, and while the AGP bus is inherently slower than PCI Express, the sheer power of the new DX10.1 card blows away the old competition.  Bring some life back to an old system with some help

MSI's Lightning series of overclocked graphics cards have garnered a large following thanks to the ease in which you can install a card that is already proven to run at higher than stock frequencies.  Their newest is a 275GTX Lightning with its GPU pushed up 67MHz and 1792MB of memory clocked 32MHz higher than stock.  In [H]ard|OCP's testing this equated to
some rather nice performance, the problem came with MSI's MRSP which is in the range of the superior 285GTX.  Still the card i
