The P67A-GD80 is an odd situation. It’s obvious that MSI has packed the GD80 full of features, to the point where you can’t use them all at once. That means it’s a great motherboard, unless you need to use your eSATA ports while using the third PCI Express x16 slot. Because of that I would only recommend this board if you had no plans for using that third. When compared to the P67A-GD65 that we reviewed at launch the GD80 has more USB 3.0 connections and a second ethernet port, for the lower price I would recommend going with the GD65 unless the dual LAN with teaming is a requirement. That’s not to say this isn’t a great board, you will just have to consider what you’re looking for in a board before you select one of the MANY boards that MSI has to offer on the P67 platform.
