By Cássio Lima on April 4, 2013 - 11:20 AM


MSI has announced the availability of its complete Gaming motherboard lineup. As part of the 2013 series of motherboards, the new Z77 Gaming models will be available far into 2014. Together with the recently introduced Gaming Graphics Cards from MSI, they allow awe-inspiring PC builds from PC gamers and enthusiasts.

The MSI Z77 Gaming motherboards are designed to have as little lag as possible, to have the best possible input relay connections from your devices (mouse, keyboard and headset) and have the best audio set up integrated in the motherboard, and have room for several video cards.

The MSI Z77A-GD65 GAMING is the top of the line Gaming motherboard. It is loaded up with all the MSI Gaming features such as Killer NIC the network lag killer, Sound Blaster Cinema for realistic surround sound even with stereo headphones, and Multi-GPU optimizations with Triple GPU support. It also comes with an array of overclocking tools like OC Genie 2, to extract even more Gaming performance out of their system.
