Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 nForce 590 SLI Motherboard Review

Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 nForce 590 SLI Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Looking at the feature set of nVIDIA's high end nForce 590 SLI chipset is like reading the menu on what a high end workstation system ought to have... except for the uninspiring single IDE channel.
