Summary: I bought this motherboard because my last finally fryed. It too was an Asus P4. I like the layout of the back plane. I was going to upgrade to a newer processor family. This allows for me to go up to Core i7. The lack of a paraelle port was the only draw back. You should know what you have and what changes you need to do. I didn't want to throw away working equipment just to upgrade. I want to do that over time. It a good product but limited in choices (i.e) LGA1156.
