Summary: Bought this mobo from Amazon along with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 5000+ BE. The mobo allows me to overclock the CPU to 3GHz and remains stable running WinXP/SP3 (did not try Vista). My mobo came with a BIOS dated Dec 2007 - didn't feel a need to upgrade it since everything is working fine. If you want SLI plus some additional frills, pay a few more dollars and get the M2N-SLI Deluxe instead.
Summary: Excelente tarjeta madre, con 3 PCI, AGP. Para los que crean que tiene video integrado, no es así, el chip NVIDIA es para optimizar la misma para juegos, etc. El chip de controladores es NVIDIA. Excelente producto y de gran calidad.
Summary: With the people here saying this board is not SLI, only nVidia based graphics cards support SLI currently. The SLI option is for anyone wanting to use more than one GPU, but they must be identical cards, which is how SLI works. This board allows you to plug 2X PCI-E GPUs, thus the SLI in the name of the board.
Summary: This board has been horrible for me. Have owned it for two years, and have had replaced twice. Great board out of the box, but then as time went on just kept seeing problem after problem. Stopped keeping time, would BSOD, would only start after several tries, until finally it wouldn't start at all. THIS HAPPENED TWICE, TWO DIFFERENT BOARDS! Asked if they would let me pay the difference to get a different model, and was told they do not do that.
Summary: After rmaing this board, vista 64 still keeps BSODing. Windows xp works perfectly, swapped ram, psu, cpu and still no go on this board. Stay away from this economy board before you get nightmares like I have gotten. Also, very poor control in the bios of changing ram voltages as well as cpu voltages.
Excelente tarjeta, Pero no es SLI como dice la publicaicon

Summary: Spanish Pros: Excelente rendimiento. Muy buen Chipset. Excelentes opciones de Overclok por Bios. Contras: No es SLI. Algunos problemas con algunas memorias que trabajan sobre 2V, debido a que el maximo voltage soportado es de 1.95V. No tiene soporte PCI-E 2.0. Tiene 1.0. English Pros: Excellent performance. Very good chipset. Excellent choices for Overclok Bios. Contra: It is not SLI.
Summary: I bought this board thinking it was sli but it wasn't. Thats all right because this was my first time making a computer i wanted sli to be an option for future upgrades but right now this mobo fits my needs. Now on to the details: Pros: It has an awesome black color my case has a side window to see in. It has a pretty cool software set with it that includes an over clocking kit and fan monitors and temp monitors which i thought was pretty cool.
Summary: I'm a novice at building computers, I've only built two before this. Everything is fairly easy to get at and well labeled. Minor issue with the IDE socket being on it's side thou. The rest is "cake", installation, set-up, even overclocking. If you're stuck with an AM2 socket CPU this is the board for you, runs fast, smooth, and after about the first minute really Quiet. I will be buying Asus again count on it.
