Summary: This mobo is great for gaming. It has all the best features, and overclocks like a champ. I love asus motherboards and this one is about the best you can get for a 775 system. I have been using it for about a month now and it is still flying along. I have it running 2 gigs of tracer ram and a 6600 quad proc. 8800gtx graphix card. I am running two 500gig drives with raid 0 stripe. It plays any game out there like easily.
Summary: This board's great. I run it with a Core 2 Quad Q6600 and a GeForce 8800GT and it's perfectly flawless. It comes with good integrated sound and wireless (which I use). It also has dual gigabit ethernet built in, which I find very handy when at LAN parties that demand the speed of a wired connection.

Summary: Every Asus mobo i ever got (at least 4 of them), they all bomb. Usually, it's a finicky issue, like 1 time, they couldn't recognize my dvd IDE drives. Their tech support told me it was cuz my #2 dvd drive was LG (Asus doesn't like LG.) Then, another time, their tech support guy said, Asus didn't like my super cool best-of-them-all Antec power supply/ brand new, 550watts, modular, top of the line, Antec NeoHE 550 psu.
Summary: El año pasado cuando decidí armar un equipo, una pc, me encontré con la duda de que tarjeta madre usar, para ese momento esta era una de las nuevas y con una propuesta interesante con mucho futuro! No me equivoque! Es excelente está fabricada cuidando el mínimo detalle, todos sus componentes son de una calidad extrema y sus extras para ser una version deluxe los encuentro escasos, son del todo bien incluyendo el Wi-fi integrado.
Summary: Looking for a good board using the new E6850 Intel core 2 duo processor and Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC1066 DDR2 memory the ASUS seemed to be a good choise. The motherboards (bought 2) are used in software development PCs, compiling large applications, replacing old Intel boards with Pentium 4 processors.
Summary: CONS: * Using the Intel Q6600 results in a bios warning message on reboot that can only be fixed with a bios update. This is extremely difficult to do without a 3.5" floppy drive. Since this is 2007 instead of 1987 it's doubtful you'll have one of those dinosaurs installed on your system. * Supports a PS2 keyboard but not a PS2 mouse. What's that all about? I have a 3 PC system where everything's shared through a KVM so it's important for me to have a PS2 inputs.
Conclusion: When we had taken a look at the board last week, we were not sure whether it was the new Intel P35 chipset that was helping it top out each chart, or if it was the fact that the DDR3 memory was faster. After benchmarking with this board, I think it’s safe to say that it was a combination of both.
Packed with features. Incredibly easy to overclock
15 July 2007
Excerpt: Intel's Core2 processors have created quite a stir since they were released last year. Initially, finding a worthy motherboard for them, espcially one that could overclock the processors was a tricky business - they were few and far between and the really good ones were horrendously expensive. The boards have come down in price a little however you will still be looking at well over £100 for some of the best examples.
Pros: Easy overclocking, well laid out, packed with features
