    Biostar is back in our test station, this time with a stylish and affordable AMD 990FX solution, the TA990FXE. Straight out of their "Extreme Edition" product line, the TA990FXE is for discerning gamers on a budget, who want top-level performance. Is it truly "Extreme"? We take a look.

    It is.

    Check out the bottom slot though, pinned for x8 in the slot:

    I suppose those extra pins are there just for physical support? And/or extra grounds?

    I am not sure, to be honest. I will have to ask.


    I did hear word that SLi support is in the works though, so that's fantastic news!

    That added SLi support makes this board an even sweeter deal!
