The MSi 785GM-E51 is a hybrid crossfire motherboard that supports a 64bit AMD Phenom II CPU. Becuase of the limitations in the chipset, it does not support Windows 98 or ME editions. The hybrid crossfire supports an Onboard VGA with PCI-E graphic card combination. It even doubles the graphic performance to meet your computing needs. It comes with HyperTransport 3.0 supporting speed of up to 2.6GHz. It comes with the AMD 785G and SB710 chipsets. It features 16GB of memory, and supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5volt DDR2 DRAM. This system is HDMI compatable, and comes with the M-Flash function, so if the BIOS crashes, it can boot from the USB still. It features loss-less content protection technology with full-rate audio enjoyment from Blu-ray disc.
