Summary: This is a great motherboard. This is my second one and the first one has been so reliable and is so packed with features that I searched out a second one when I needed to replace another brand's board.
Summary: Very simple to install and set up. I had mine built in less than an hour and this was only my first actual build. I spent more time trying to recover my old files from the same HDD I had from my previous computer which seemed to get misplaced during the OS setup.
Summary: In the last several months I've used three of these mother boards with AMD Phenom quadcore CPUs to replace three family PCs. I've been happy with the board on each occasion. I've not had to contact tech support so I can't comment on that.
Summary: It's an EXCELLENT motherboard for a not so high grade gamer, or a high grade one, it's a motherboard that will last all through upgrading your computer, it's amazing and a perfect inexpensive motherboard. It runs a perfect dual core set and up to a quad core.
Summary: And so far so good. Plenty of connections. Using in my secondary machine now. I sent my 790gx to ASUS as it died, but they sent me back one that also didn't work. So I bought this. I really don't care for ASUS anymore, so this will probably be my last ASUS buy.
Summary: I actually don't own this board. I own another ASUS board. But this is relevant. ASUS tech support is ASTOUNDING. The best I have ever used by far. They answer quickly-- I've never held for more then 3-5 minutes-- and when they do, oh boy. They hire people with real, serious tech training.
Summary: This is a great little mobo. Every output you could want and interesting features. Express gate allows you to surf the internet and check email without entering the OS(you can do this in a matter of seconds). It also has My Logo that lets you put any picture you want as a boot logo.
