What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of MSI NF750-G55 Motherboard ?

The latest version motherboard from MSI is MSI NF750-G55 that has a lot of controversies. It has more drawbacks than advantages. For example, there is no bigger difference between 750a and 980a except the PCI-express lanes. The 750a here can only afford a single PCI-Express x16 lane that will split into x8s for SLI in the big blue slots. The sixth and final SATA port of the board is assigned to give more peripheral connections for eSATA duty.
