Good choice if you aren't ready to buy new system.

Summary: I was looking for a MB that was versatile. I needed space for several video cards as I use 4 monitors for stock trading. This board fits the bill and I also like the idea that I can use 2 types of memory. My old board smoked so I wasn't interested in buying a bunch of upgrades. I will upgrade to DDR2 soon, but don't want to be forced to get new video cards, new CPU, and new Memory all at once. I was able to get back up with minimal outlay and room for expansion.
Excerpt: Hi, just to say.. this Motherboard is brilliant... works fine with my Pentium 4 524 (HT) and DDR2 RAM. I bought this motherboard to replace my old one that decided it was time to move on. I removed the old one, popped this one in, and away it went. Only one problem i have had with it, it seems to want to keep my chassis fans and CPU fat on full all the time, whereas my old one sped them up and slowed them down as nessacery, Don't know if you can get somthing to control...

Excerpt: Das ASRock 775 Dual-VSTA besticht natürlich auf den ersten Blick mit dem günstigen Preis von ca. 55€. Aber das ist nicht der einzige Pluspunkt. Fangen wir beim Layout an: Das Board ist aufgeräumt und bietet ein gutes Platzangebot. Trotzdem sprengt es nicht die Maße eines Standard Mainboards. Man kann ale Anschlüsse leicht erreichen, was das Installieren der Komponenten erleichtert. Der Chipsatz von VIA wird passiv gekühlt. Das entwickelt kein unangenehmes Geräusch.
