6 years strong

Nathan M., Newegg
3 May 2015
  • Summary: If you could pick this up on the cheap, it would be great for a simple build for a relative or maybe your kid.
  • Pros: Great board for the price. (6 years ago) Obviously you will not find this board new anywhere anymore, but if you happen upon this board online somewhere, and are just looking for a simple build with on-board graphics, HDMI output, SATA ports, AM2, DDR2, etc... This one will not disappoint.
  • Cons: Lack of support these days i would guess. Otherwise none

TA790GX

kabuki E., Newegg
3 January 2011
  • Pros: I have had a good deal of experience with a wide variety of motherboards. I am using this in a personal computer and have been for many years. This has been the best motherboard I have ever used or owned. The price to quality ratio is astounding! The features on this motherboard were, at the time...
  • Cons: Memmory ports are just a bit too close together to hold heat-sinked RAM comfortably, they still fit however.

BSDs and Audio Malfunction

Mitchell G., Newegg
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Tech support seems fairly unresponsive....
  • Pros: Cheap and Runs ok...
  • Cons: Every so often my computer freezes and BSDs, vista claims it's due to USB 2.0 drivers. I went to Biostar's sub par website and found the listed drivers for USB were only supported for Windows XP (or so the title states). I've updated all my drivers, but lock ups are becoming more frequent and mak...

BOUGHT IT USED A YEAR AGO STILL WORKS

CARMINE C., Newegg
6 September 2009
  • Summary: Since I owned this more than a year,I want to share my thoughts.A couple of days ago I thought the motherboard died for no reason.It just didn't want to boot.No noise,no lights ,nothing. It was actually my power supply that fried.So if this happens to you test the PSU first before RMA
  • Pros: EXCELLENT BOARD ALL AROUND.EVEN THOUGH IT HAS THE BEST BUILT IN ONBOARD VIDEO CHIP.I STILL WISH IT WAS BETTER SO I DIDN'T NEED TO ADD A PCI-EXPRESS CARD.I ADDED AMD Phenom II X4 940 , G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 .Overclocked like crazy
  • Cons: NO CONS

take a chance

Daniel V., Newegg
3 September 2009
  • Summary: In the end, take a chance with this board. It has many excellent features, but it's production seems faulty at best, considering my experience and the experience of others. I would have given this board 4 eggs if it had worked.
  • Pros: built-in power/reset switches, hdmi, fast ethernet, hd3300 integrated gpu, LED's, good price. In fact, the mobo has a bazillion features, including overclocking and RAID setup manual was decent enough, the hd audio was nice. definitely an upgrade from realtek ac 97. I had no hardware conflicts/pr...
  • Cons: I'm not sure how this is compared to other motherboards, but this board doesnt have the best positions for mounting holes (where you put the screws to attach to the tower/case). I felt like i was gonna break or bend the board badly trying to plug in the ide and power cables, since the holes are n...

User Review

Mark B., Newegg
30 August 2009
  • Summary: The week it took to RMA convinced me to upgrade to a DDR3 setup...
  • Pros: It has a lot of cool features like the LEDs that let you know whats going on with your system, is easy to upgrade, and easy to use
  • Cons: It didn't even last a year. One day I come home from work and my system won't POST so I throw in my system rescue cd to trouble shoot and it turns out the motherboard is shot. I sent it to Biostar and they RMAed it for the cost of shipping it there and it only took a week ish.

Nice board!

shawn u., Newegg
7 August 2009
  • Summary: Don't think I'll need to buy another computer for a while. This mobo excepts quad core processors with a bios update. Buy one now 1
  • Pros: Copper heat sinks on northbridge and southbridge keeps the board running cool. Disk drivers are easy to install. The manual is pretty good. First build for me and was an easy one with this board I'll recommend it to any one. Will buy from biostar in the feature
  • Cons: None really that I've found yet.

Decent board, until it dies.

Dennis W., Newegg
16 June 2009
  • Pros: Ran a Phenom II with 8gb of DDR2 just fine until...
  • Cons: 5 months after I bought it, it just decides to die without warning. I've built systems for 15 years, and this is the soonest I've had a board die that wasn't DOA.
