Default MSI 790GX-G65 ATX Motherboard

Legit review gave this board editor's choice award. Any comments from users point of view? Does MSI make good boards?

I called MSI not too long ago with a technical question. Their phone support was rude, incompetent and downright unhelpful. I've never bought an MSI motherboard and I never will.

MSI is a pretty good brand. It's not as big as ASUS or Gigabyte, but a big brand nonetheless.

@CM. Maybe you got a bad rep? That's like calling into Rogers or Fido and getting a bad CSR, then vowing to never use their services again.

@Geokilla: Here's what happened:
Me: "Your motherboard *** seems to have this chipset: ***. Does it support this *** feature?"
MSI: "Hang on.... I don't know anything about that product..."
<< 20-30 minutes on hold >>
MSI: "No."
Me: "No?"
MSI: "No."
Me: "Can I ask why you seem to be the only company that uses *** chipset yet doesn't support it's main differentiating feature?"
MSI: "No. We just don't support it."
Me: "Can you offer me any explanation at all?"
MSI: "No."
Me: ". Bye."

Thanks for your responses.

@CM, I guess the rep's will not be able to answer that type of questions. If they have a public or investor relations office, they might be better equipped to answer it.
