Summary: I ordered the motherboard to rebuild my computer. It took about 4 weeks to get it because of customs . when it arrived it was damaged. it had been wet and one end of carton was crushed. I notified sender and went through the returning process of returning it.
Summary: onboard nic wiped out by lightning. the rest of the board is ok, and still running 4 years later. CPU is a 1.9GHz Brisbane dual-core 45watt. needless to say it runs cool, and does everything i need it to. just recently upgraded with NVidia GT610 graphics card.
Pros: Not a single problem after years of daily use, and (amazingly) just upgraded to somewhat respectable levels: AM3 Athlon II X4 640 * 8GB Crucial DDR2 Sapphire HD7850 Creative X-Fi Titanium 520W Seasonic S12II Win7 64 All installed easily without a single issue, and performs flawlessly. Not too bad...
Summary: Wanted to upgrade my CPU, but my old ECS board couldn't handle 89w processor. Bought this at a bargain and was not disappointed. This board can handle the CPU and comes with some many more features not available on my previous board.
Summary: I have used the board with two different graphics cards, so can't comment about the onboard graphics. I just made the switch which prompted me to come back to newegg to look for some of the specs that I couldn't remember.
Pros: Bought it in July 2008, and it still works in March 2012. Other than the complaints below, I have not had any compatibility or other issues with it. Can't complain too much when I get 4 years out of a $65 motherboard.
Cons: Neither the onboard LAN nor audio ever worked. Neither bothered me that much, as I have USB adapters for wireless and audio that solved the problem.
Summary: When this board died I bought another Asus board but it came with issues and again I attempted to contact Asus but they will not reply.
Pros: None now, the board is dead!
Cons: This board lasted just over a year and died. Problem is that Asus no longer supports it's products. I have called and placed online support tickets but Asus will not reply. I will never buy an Asus product again.
