AMD may not have the lead in the CPU market, but that isn't going to discourage them. After all, they have been here before, and recovered - Phenom II could be just the stepping stone for them and for now it's a perfectly acceptable alternative to Intel's Core 2 Duo line of processors. And with a cheaper price tag than that of the Core i7 processors, you can afford a good quality gaming system with AMD.
It's very important to see AMD's partners keep supporting them, and ASRock has done a fantastic job keeping AMD products running out the doors, and the MA3785GHX/128M is a fantastic product.
This beauty comes with not only an integrated graphics processor that has its own dedicated 128MB of memory, so you don't have to use any system memory for graphics rendering. And not only does it support Hybrid CrossFireX with certain ATI based discrete GPU's to help bolster the graphics performance with two GPU's running, as well as saving power when the discrete GPU isn't needed. The board also has a full CrossFireX support using two discrete GPU's and will run two of ATI's dual GPU X2 video cards if required - the only problem is that this board doesn't support full speed CrossFireX.
Overall this board comes out quite well especially in price. On Newegg you can have this board for a record bargain price of around $99.99 USD - that's right full ATX, overclocks come in under $100 USD: ASRock you have a winner here for users looking to build a highly affordable system with pretty decent performance.
