And why "Gaming" again? Why does every company name their products "Gaming"?...

Like, is it specifically designed for "Gaming" like WS is for Workstations?...

Because no matter how poo it is if you add gaming to the name you can charge £100 more than it is worth.

Probably the prettiest board MSI have made so far, not perfect but still it's a step in the right direction.

Right, only one small amount of red... Which ruins it overall in my opinion.

They went mental though didn't they with the whole "Carbon Fiber", "Dragons", "LEDS" and "Gaming" laden boards which just look terribad, we're gamers not 17 year old boys with our first car and a roll of carbon vinyl. They should take a leaf out of EVGAs book, the classy looking tidy boards always catch the eye.

I know the Dragon is MSIs gimmick but you only have to spend a few minutes on any of their social media sites to see that it's become hated, as has LEDs added into everything.

Pretty much

Seems like Gigabyte & MSI are the only ones who do it which is a fail surely they can think of a different name, "Gaming" is just dumb to me.
