My System Specs

Default AMD 690 Chipset

"Today, AMD is announcing their first proprietary chipset: the RS690. Already many manufacturers are lined up to produce boards with this entry-level, mainstream chipset, and with good reason. The budget-centric mATX market is big and growing, and the NVIDIA 6100-series chipset is a little long in the tooth.

Certainly not up to enthusiasts standards, but I love these kinds of boards for folks who don't game.

25% better scores over the 6100 series is pretty impressive.
