A classic and worth the money if you max this thing out.

Summary: A great deal and still a powerful board if you have some decent cards to SLI with. The used cpu's for this are so cheap its sick. I put a 2.7 GHZ in this thing with 8 gigs of ram and two older nvidia cards in. Running windows 7 with no issues and still games well. Under 50 bucks and I had older parts to add so it was well worth to recreate a decent spare gamer pc for guests.
Summary: I use this board with 64 bit Mint Linux, so I am not perhaps a typical user, I have been using it for 2 months, I had a few hiccups at the beginning, I did not set up the dual channel memory correctly It has been used to produce and test software and has performed well it is paired with a AMD Phenom(tm) 9750 Quad-Core Processor. I am using the bios version that the previous owner set up.
Very poor quality product, a lot of compatibility issues, very unussable.

Summary: Very weak and not a good value for money motherboard. It has very limited compatibility with RAM modules and cannot utilise all the avalaible installed memory. Very tricky to use it in Dual ram mode, and even if you make it work, after restart it won't work in dual mode, but it will recognise only half the installed memory.
Summary: After a day of work on my PC, I finally got the motherboard working. The job started out nice and smooth, but I ran into problems within a few minutes after booting my PC. I worked on it again the next day, and found the memory was having issues. I reseated the memory sticks, and things started working again, even after setting the memory timing. I have only one gripe. One of the clip locks on the memory slots is broken.
Summary: The Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe is probably my favorite mobo that I have ever owned. Right now i am running Windows 7 Pro. 64-bit, and 8GB of RAM. I have an AMD Phenom II X4 940, three 500GB hard drives, and dual nvidia 8800gts gpu's (sli linked). I have not had ONE single problem with it. When I got this mobo, i originally ran an AMD phenom X4 9500 with 2GB RAM and windows Vista home 32-bit, and was leary on whether the board would accept the upgrades that i made.
Summary: I like this motherboard alright, but I'm about to RMA the board for the third time-- no graphics on startup, and it's not the graphics card or memory. Other people seem to have had a better experience with this board, so I guess it's just bad luck. Also, the ethernet connectors are very poor quality, I frequently have to plug and unplug my network cable a few times to get internet connectivity.
