yes, the 790FX chips are very good. They're possibly the most solid motherboard chipsets AMD has ever had so far.
AMD used to have it really hard for chipset support. It was thanks to companies like Via and Sis that kept them going.
Then, Nvidia's Nforce chipsets made a big impact for AMD. then, ATI started making some chipsets. Which were descent, but still not as good as the Nforce chipsets.
But now, I think the 790FX surpasses what Nvidia has made so far.
