Works, but 1066 MHz FSB is too broken to rely on.

Adam M., Newegg
30 March 2015
  • Summary: If you're using Windows ME like I am, install with only one of your two sticks of memory installed. Once it's installed, shut down, but the second 1 gb stick in, and edit C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI to contain the following.
  • Pros: This is a poor choice for building a modern Windows machine, but if you want it to run Windows 98/ME, as I did, it could hardly get any better. My specs are similar to the other retrocomputing reviewer's: E5800 CPU, 2 GB GSkill DDR400, Geforce 6800 Ultra, but I tossed in two SATA SSDs and an IDE ...
  • Cons: 1066 MHz support is essentially broken. I RMA'd the board thinking I'd gotten a bad one before installing an E5800 instead of the E6800 I initially chose. That resolved all my problems booting. And really, the E5800 is plenty fast in this system. Windows ME boots in about two seconds in my setup,...

User Review

Patrick L., Newegg

  • Summary: I got this MB, along with a refurbished E7500 Core2 Duo and a secondhand Asus Xonar HDAV1.3 Slim soundcard to hold me over until I was ready to build a new i5 or i7 based PC. That was more then six month ago and I feel no pressing need to get started on a new build.
  • Pros: Allows you to add multi-core CPUs to older single-core systems without having to replace everything else.
  • Cons: More RAM slots and SATA connectors would be nice.

Great AGP board

Mark S., Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Summary: I had s couple of 3850 AGP boards in socket A boards. This was a chance to couple these with X6800 cpu I had. This would be a perfect AGP board it the memory access speed was a bit better and the capacity was increased some. Current setup has 2 IDE optical drives with 1 IDE hard drive.
  • Pros: Best AGP board around. Chance to use left over IDE and AGP parts.
  • Cons: Memory is a bit slow.

Outstanding Opportunity!

James D., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Bottom line is that I have a system that screams when running games produced between 1995 and 2005. The idea for this project came as a result of my not being able to run old X-wing and Tie Fighter space combat simulation games in Windows XP or Windows 7.
  • Pros: When I saw this motherboard offered at Newegg I got VERY excited! I had in mind to build a new computer capable of playing “old” games and this fit the bill to a tee! The pros: 1) The Intel 865 chipset is supported by Windows 9X, Windows XP, and higher 2) The AGP 8x slot allows using the highest ...
  • Cons: There are no real cons if you accept that you are dealing with older tech that is being pushed to the limit. That said, I would offer these caveats. In no particular order: 1) The motherboard specs give a 300Mhz FSB limit, but that doesn’t guarantee you can get that high. I ran into an FSB wall a...

Great for Window98se

Dave F., Newegg
22 August 2013
  • Pros: Very fast with Core Duo E5800. Window 98SE installs and works fast-comes with Win98se drivers. Probably the latest drivers-the Intel win98se drivers are dated around 2003-4.
  • Cons: Native USB 2.0 wasn't reading Sandisk right in DOS. I had to reflash the BIOS which seemed to correct it. The capacitors are cheap, not sure how long this board will last without recapping. I couldn't boot Windows 98se from a SATA drive(not even in compatability mode) like I can with a VIA chipset.

ASRock 775I65G Motherboard

phantomsunny, Ebay
6 March 2011
  • Summary: The motherboard in my aging machine finally died. Faced with the high cost of a new computer and on the other hand having all these old but functioning parts lying around I started my search. I didn't need the latest and greatest just something for basic computing.

Carte Mère Intel Micro ATX Socket 775 DDR 400

Nadia GOUASMI, Amazon
25 June 2010
  • Summary: C'est un très bon produit si vous avez une unité centrale de plus de 6 ans ou moins. Petite précision et c'est dommage, il n'y a pas le gel de refroidissement qu'il faut l'acheter à part (ou si vous en avez encore dans votre ancienne carte mère, utilisez-là) et peut être des barrettes de rames du...

rospikk, Ciao
23 March 2007

  • Pros: economica
