Three AMD 790 Motherboards Reviewed
[QUOTE]As much as we love Intel's Core i7 CPUs, and their complimentary X58-based motherboards, we have to admit that stuff's expensive. One of the primary reasons people are considering AMD parts for their next build is the price.
The one-two combination of lower prices and acceptable performance have gained back some of AMD's waning fan base. For a while it seemed that AMD just wasn't up to the competition in its attempt to take on Intel, but as AM3 parts become more and more powerful AMD might once again become the low-cost super-alternative it once was.
