In regards to your statement about AMDs APU performance, the fact of the matter is that AMDs APUs provide an excellent user experience at a very low price. These systems are currently entry level or a tad above systems. Eventually AMD APUs will also be available for mid-level and high end PCs providing the best bang for the buck across all market segments including many server applications. Discrete CPUs and GPUs will be for the very small market segment willing to pay a price priemium for Cross-Fire or triple GPUs.

When consumers see how well the mid-level and high end AMD APUs function, many will make the switch to the AMD APUs because they will get discrete component performance at a significantly lower cost with lower power consumption and lower heat. That's a very compelling propostion for most consumers including PC enthusiasts.

How many years is it now that MSI have had reasonably good boards that are constantly let down by sub par bios ???

Will they ever learn ??, after all these years I doubt it

I could say: Just pair this good middle range board with the 65W A10-5700 and forget about the O/C. This will be enough for most non-gamers. Problem is, the A10-5700 is selling for the same price as the A10-5800, and sometimes for more.

Well, Richland, and A10-6700, is just around the corner.

Nice review. It starts we the love from the author for Intel. That's where my reading ends.
