Perhaps in response to the ASUS ROG series MSI has labelled their newest board as a member of their Gaming Series. The MSI X58 PRO-E is a $189 full ATX board with three PCIe 16x slots, though one only has enough bandwidth to provide 4x to the card. As an X58 board, it supports LGA 1366 CPUs and triple channel RAM up to 1600MHz, 7 SATA connectors plus a sole eSATA port as well as a good dozen USB 2.0 ports. Drop by [H]ard|OCP for a look at this no-frills X58 board if you are looking to build an inexpensive Core i7 platform.
"We take a look at another offering from MSI. Think of this one as a budget oriented X58
board that's pretty much all business. It brings SLI and CrossfireX support to a more
mainstream price point. The board's packaging sports a "Gaming Series" logo on it which is a
telltale sign of who they are targeting with this product."
