    wow that looks impressive. sli and crossfire? fantastic. 10 sata ports and 8 usb ports? bloody awsome!

    but how much? if its £200 for this mobo then thats fine with me well worth it with all those features

    If MSI stick to their usual competitive pricing they could be on for a hell of a winner here.

    Did I see 10 USB ports? That would mean I didn't have to use as many "hubs" for things.

    I've got "about" 8 devices (depending on what's plugged in). If I use my Dell 2407's USB hub, then when my screen goes into "sleep" (usually after a minute of inactivity) all the devices have to re-install afterwards.

    It's annoying. I'll keep an eye on this product.

    Actually, there are eight. Plus two eSATA ports that look a bit like USB ports.

    a well-equipped I/O panel that provides PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, four USB ports, FireWire, two eSATA ports, a clear CMOS button, dual-Gigabit Ethernet and a further four USB ports.

    Re: News - MSI Eclipse: a promising companion for Intel's Core i7

    Looks good so far.

    The colour is better than some of the other msi boards and it looks like they've finally sorted out "having all the same memory channel slots the same colour"
    however it would of been nice if they'd used the same style pci-e/pic slots as are on there p35 motherboards.

    you know that you have headers on the motherboard for either 2 or 4 more ports waiting to be plugged it right? even if you dont want to swap the case you could stick a bracket in the back!
