I really think it would be good to have a area where discussions about and relevant information be exchanged reguarding AMD Chipsets and there performance and drivers and help to those new to building to understand more than just what AMD has on the website.

Well there is such a place.

Desktop specs & component

At the same time this is AMD processor forums

But I would agree , it sounds like a good idea.

Ok lets start one here.
Whats the differnce between the 790GX chipset and the 790FX chipset besides
the 8x8 PCIe lanes on the 790GX and 16x16 PCIe lanes on the 790FX?

790 FX has no integrated graphics

790 GX costs considerably less and has the 3300 HD integrated graphics chip set.

790 GX tends to be the better overclocker so I have been told

I think the 790 GX and 790 FX overclock the same

benchmarks show them to be a dead match across the board.

Well that's one way to start one of many issues concerning AMD chipsets.
