Summary: I have always loved Asus products and would always recomend them. I have to say thought, there is a major BIOS issue with this motherboard. I had mine for 3 days and everything worked great. I flashed my bios like everyone should and.......It failed!
Summary: This board sucks! I have had nothing but problems from day 1. If you don't have a floppy drive in my system like me then you can't install the SATA drivers. At first I got a blank screen / no response because I put the memory in the wrong slots which itself is bad when memory slots dont work no...
Summary: Delivered very fast, as usual. M/B is not compatible with ATI 9800PRO. Computer restarts randomly all the time. It can work without restarting, only with AGP 4x and with "fast writes" disabled. Both settings can be found in the BIOS. Stay away if you have ATI 9800PRO.
Summary: This board is just O-K. because it uses a VIA chipset, ATI cards will not work decent with this. I put a Saphire 9800 Pro on here,and PC reboots every half hour. Not to mention the pain i had when i had to configure the two SATA raided drives.
Excerpt: ASUS A8V Deluxe ------------------------ Ich habe dieses Board gekauft, da ich nur gute Berichte darüber gelesen habe. Zur Entscheidung trug bei, dass es günstig war und ich mir zuerst keine neue Grafikkarte kaufen wollte.
Pros: günstig, mit Sockel 939 zukunftsicher, AGP Anschluss
Cons: instabil, zumindest nicht mit allen Komponenten stabil, AGP - Anschluss
