ASUS AMD socket 754 motherboard

gbhsgbhs, Ebay
2 December 2012
  • Summary: Overall a great used motherboard. Sound system is a bit tricky to get loaded. Everything else was fairly simple to set up. I wish they'd made more of these socket 754 boards since it's the last processor type AMD produced with the stronger, less easily bent "pins" on them.

Great Value

  • Summary: For the price this is an excellent buy but future expandability may be limited due to lack of SLI/Crossfire support. When installing XP & SP1 you will need Microsoft's .NET framework patch installed for the LAN to work.
  • Pros: Paired with an Athlon 64 X2 2.2hgz, 2GB Ram and Radeon HD 2600XT this mobo flies! No issues during installation.
  • Cons: Does not have two PCI-E slots. The first PCI slot shouldn't be used due to the lack of space between the PCI card and most PCIE video card heatsink/fan's.

  • Pros: Good while it worked.
  • Cons: Onboard Video died after 2 months of operation. Also, I kept getting delayed write error when I had configured this in RAID-1, this was with updated drivers and all. Eventually had to buy a dedicated hardware RAID.

Great Low / Mid Range Mobo

Chris C., Newegg
11 October 2007
  • Summary: An excellent board for a PC which you are going to do some basic computing tasks on. With higher end / Gaming tasks I would get a PCI Express Video Card and use that instead of the internal Card
  • Pros: A very easy to install Mobo with moderate room for expansion with PCI and PCI Express. The SATA interfaces are great and located in good place on the board. In a very short time after receiving the board I had the computer up and running. Easy to Follow instructions
  • Cons: Integrated Video is not that great. I set the internal video for 256 MB and it still will not play Civ 4. Afraid to try it with other games. The Parallel port in the back of the board is very flimsy feeling (Not that it matters since I have not used Parallel in a number of years)

Excellent Desktop Board

  • Pros: I've built 4 systems based on this board - starting the 5th tomorrow. Use a 4800+ 65 nm X2 chip and you'll have a super quiet mchine that has great performance. If you're buying it to use in a gaming machine though, you'll need to add a high end video card as the on board 6150 video was never mea...

Good, but has it's problem

Alex E., Newegg
5 September 2007
  • Summary: The board didn't work at first and when I called ASUS the said they were too busy and they would call me back and never did, but I figured it out my self eventually.
  • Pros: Very easy to update with it's built in utilities, good price for what your getting. I'd recomend this for any budget build up to a mid range gaming rig.
  • Cons: locations of screw holes make it very flimsy. Not the best for overclocking

ASUS never disapoints

  • Pros: installed MB, plugged in and turned on, no problems.
  • Cons: 2 of the USB connectors are kind of close to the monitor connector, makes it hard to use those 2 USB ports and use onboard video.
