Spend the extra money and get a 870 chipset. #%^#% MSI is playing silly buggers, the GA-870-G45 is an old 770/SB710 chipset. That alone is enough to annoy me. Truth be told, MSI lost any business they would get from me with the last MSI board I bought, the thing was nothing but trouble. Last I checked the Atheros AR8131M network chip wont work out of the box with linux as well, so you would need to compile the drivers to even get networking. AND I'm pretty sure I'm seen at least one person say that the GA-870 overvoltaged his AMD CPU with the voltages set to 'atuo' as well......
GTX460 SE, with 'SE' meaning 'slow edition'. A normal 1GB GTX460 isnt much more.
