Summary: This was a good motherboard to buy. It actually came with a black deck, not that beige color in the picture. It works. It did take about 2 weeks for it to come from California to Michigan (I ordered December 30th) My Athlon Dual Core clocked at 2.8Ghz liked it very much. haha The RAM slots were a little funny. You really have to push down on the RAM Module to get the clips to fully click which worried me.
Summary: This motherboard was installed as part of 2 computer upgrades.(his & hers). The ASUS motherboards have been very reliable in the past and these 2 new units were no exception. They were installed and started with no problems.
Summary: This motherboard is a brilliant piece of hardware. Bearing in mind, it has only two slot for RAM, i have rated it as a lower end board. It is definitely worth the money at only USD70.00. It has sufficient SATA slots and has SLI too.
Summary: Okay, let me start by saying my Gateway motherboard was defective, and it wasn't that great anyways. So I looked around for a cheap, yet good replacement I found this one, it works great, everything is as advertized, and I recommend this Motherboard to anybody who needs a cheap good one, it works in most tower cases, in some it does not work because the metal makes it go out.
Summary: I've always had good success with Asus. Works just fine, with my older parts. Needed a board just to use up spare parts. Loaded OpenSuse 11.4 64, and everything went smoothly. 8 GB Ram. Phenom 9150.
