My System Specs


My only question is this. How badly are the board manufacturers going to screw this one up? Looks good, as did the 780G..........

Hopefully AMD sets some better standards for the board manufacturers so they don't **** this up again. The 780G boards are still great, just don't pair them w/ high-powered CPUs or expect high-levels of overclocking.
