Pros: Many good options to set a quite amount of hd sata and ata. Supports ht Prescott p4. not problems on overclockin. Better than other boards with 865 chipset such as intels. Affordable and easy to insta
Cons: must have update bios in order to use a prescott processor but not a problem
Pros: -all the built in features like USB 2.0, SATA / RAID, Ethernet, Audio, dual channel memmory access -also nice is the lack of built in video support - added cost that relatively few people use IMO. -excellent manual and instructions -little extras like cab

Pros: runs cool ich5r runs better with 865pe some boards have others not as good. has PAT in bios under diffrent name over clockes well+RAID+4SATA+DUAL DDR AND INS reset bios so no need to open it 2 pull out batter. Much better then gigabyte 8ipe100pro2 pro2 do
Cons: none and iv stuff up a few like pro2 which lasted me 3month iv had my p4p800 over clocked at 3.60ghz for same time now its realy a 3.0ghz p4
Pros: I accidentaly destroyed the CPU fan base and it still works!!! So many USBs!!! SATA,RAID and IDE works perfect together! PCI ports are perfect placed. Manual is superb. With iP4/2,8 HT i have 41C on cpu and 31C on mobo. (Hmmm, i should buy another 256
Cons: Sometimes it stops after BIOS test. Says that i overclocked the CPU (i don't!) and i have to reset the BIOS. I press the reset button and everything is back in normal. I think this happens when you add new hardware.
Pros: ASUS in my opinion are the most stable motherboards i have used. they are really compatable. this board allows you to have an extra two devices ie hdds. (which is always handy) :) The board comes with many expansion ports such as 1349 adapters and many US
Pros: Runs everything w/o any problems very fast and then some! Bus can be tweaked to run overclocked a little or alot in small percentages. Beats the new South Intel Motherboards in form and function. Asus has many more high performance features and a great
Cons: You'll need to pull out your AGP X800 to change your memory...no big deal.
