Great budget mobo

Robert S., Newegg
10 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as my HTPC and to eventaully use with a 2nd display as a basic home PC. So far it's been great - no problems to report. The quad-core i5's and i7's do not have integrated video and thus will not work with the onboard HDMI.
  • Pros: Easy to set up Simple and straight forward HDMI out Perfect mobo for my HTPC Supports up to 16 GB of ram
  • Cons: Doesn't allow for much configuration or OCing, but didn't buy it for that - it's a simple budget board Didn't come with a dozen krispy kremes

Nice Bargain Board

JW S., Newegg
17 December 2010
  • Summary: I love the big color roadmaps EVGA includes with their mobos. We have them taped up in the shop like pin-up girls.
  • Pros: I like EVGA products and have had good overall luck with them. This is no exception. Makes a wonderful low end office desktop platform.
  • Cons: Only 1 PCI? slot...really? Wow...I had to really search the BIOS for any switchable functions. The barest bones BIOS I have ever seen

Finally a good balanced mATX board

Benjamin H., Newegg
5 December 2010
  • Summary: This being a Made in China EVGA board makes me question it's longterm reliability unlike the high end made in TAIWAN boards. EVGA did a great job designing the board but i would of been willing to pay a few bucks more just to have all solid caps and get it manufactured from the same sources that...
  • Pros: Well designed mATX board. Good mix and placement of esata and pci slots. I/O back panel has esata as well as hdmi
  • Cons: Not all capacitors are solid caps. No overclocking or v-mod options in bios. EVGA driver site is lacking up to date drivers, the CD that come with the board had more up to date drivers then the website.

Great Casual/MediaPC board

Anonymous, Newegg
5 December 2010
  • Summary: Put an i3-550 in here, integrated graphics are pretty good too. Tested world of warcraft on here and it would only let me go up to about half graphics settings, but still performed fine.
  • Pros: I love these EVGA boards they almost set the standard in my opinion. Everything fit great, easy to hook up. Had no trouble at all making connections.
  • Cons: Can't think of any

onboard Video Support Only with i3 CPU

Steven R., Newegg
1 December 2010
  • Pros: Very versatile board other than the Cons below.
  • Cons: To use onboard video(SVGA, DVI, HDMI) you have to use an i3 CPU. ONLY THE i3 SUPPORTS ON BOARD VIDEO CAPABILITY. THE i5 & i7 DOES NOT SUPPORT THE ON BOARD FEATURES FOR THIS BOARD! I wish I had know this prior to purchase.

Not a bad little board

Nicholas G., Newegg
12 October 2010
  • Summary: This is my second EVGA Motherboard, after getting an X58 3xSLI, and I'm sold on the company. Their customer support is, bar none, the best out there. I shoehorned an EVGA GTX260 in there, with 4GB Ballistix Tracer, a 150GB Raptor, a BR-DVD, and an i3-530 into an Antec DF-30, and the machine runs...
  • Pros: Easy install, not a lot of stuff going on so for a secondary gaming machine / HTPC / spare rig it's perfect. People who are bashing it - it's an $80 mATX motherboard, guys, don't go looking for the feature set you're gonna get on a Sabertooth or SR-2 Classified. You get what you pay for.
  • Cons: SATA placement is horrid; using a large video-card covers up 3 out of 5 SATA ports. HD Audio Placement is also covered up by a large card. This is borderline unacceptable - EVGA knows who their customer base is, they should have had the foresight to rectify this in the design stage. Poor planning...
