Biostar TA790GX A2+ Motherboard
IXBT Labs have a review of the Biostar TA790GX A2+ Motherboard, an inexpensive product with a few drawbacks:
Examination of the motherboard brings us only to a trivial conclusion -- engineers fully implemented chipset functionality, having avoided all widespread drawbacks (to be more exact, known ones, which are still of rare occurrence). So we can criticize the motherboard only for the lack of interesting addons, which might have marked it among its competitors. However, even this accusation is groundless, because a motherboard must be inexpensive, that is stand out from other models with its price, not its original features. Hypercritical users may dislike that the first and the second graphics ports are swapped. So when a single card is installed in the far slot (according to the manual), it will block scarce PCI ports. Besides, note the original way to switch between operating modes of PCI Express x16 ports: if a single graphics card is installed and you want this port to get all 16 lanes, you should install a special bundled card into the vacant port. However, Biostar typically designs hardware circuits to switch between modes, just be happy that you don't have to use jumpers, like in TPower N750.
