The BIOSTAR TA890GXB HD is built around AMD's latest 890GX chipset. At $95 the BIOSTAR TA890GXB HD Micro ATX motherboard also happens to be the least expensive AMD 890GX chipset based motherboard on Newegg.com right now. This 890GX based motherboard features SATA3 and the latest Radeon HD 4290 integrated graphics, all in a small Micro ATX package. How will it perform against our other systems? Read on to find out!

Overall the BIOSTAR TA890GXB HD is a solid board for what it is. It isn't being marketed as an extreme overclocking board, because it's not. It is a board designed for the mainstream market who are looking for a board that will support the latest processors from AMD and have great integrated graphics without breaking the bank. I could easily see the BIOSTAR TA890GXB HD being used in a system for an HTPC or any system that you want the best bang for the buck! At the time of this writing, the BIOSTAR TA890GXB HD is the lowest cost 890GX chipset motherboard at Newegg.com at a nice low cost of only $94.99 plus shipping and is $35 less expensive than the next Micro ATX motherboard...

I like the placement of the SATA ports on this one, some mobo makers aren't thinking and put them in line with the PCI-e 16x slot so you lose one or two with an oversize card. Looks like it would be a decent HTPC mobo.
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:
