Summary: Used to build an Intel Core Duo Linux (Debian 7) server. Lots of great features for a SKT-775 mother board. Had no issues with drivers under Debian 7. The faster RAM and SATA options are a big selling point.
Summary: good motherboard for the price, have it running on this gaming machine and it stands up great, be aware this is a small board though. awkward to work on unless you have pixie hands, also forget about using the pci ports if you have a top graphics card, completely obscures the ports, sata cables was abit of a squeeze also. If you dont have a fat GFX card and you are building a capable yet compact system it is ideal. overall..
Great board to extend the life of your quad-core 775 CPU

Summary: I had two identical machines with Intel Q6600 CPUs mounted on boards with DDR2, but I wanted to use DDR3 memory for music production purposes. I upgraded one PC with one of these boards and made comparisons - the DDR3 PC blew the DDR2 PC away when it came to realtime music production, so i upgraded the second PC too.

Summary: This is the best lga775 mobo i have come across because my old Asus P5KPL-VM/S was corrupted. This was the best option. I am using my old Core 2 duo processor with ddr3 ram G skill Ripjaws which yields a major performance boost than my past configuration. If any one want's the taste of modern ddr3 technology without giving up old cpu then it is the destination. My windows experience rating is 6.2 which i think is decent.
Any Suggestion/recomendation regarding Ram & Graphic Card for this Mother board?

Summary: I'm looking to upgrade my Ram from 2Gb to 8GB (4GB*2) or it can support 16GB as well?. Wanted to know which one is the best ram for gaming purpose (G.Skill SNIPER 4GB or Corsair Vengeance 4GB) and are these rams supported by this mother board?. Also looking for a decent Graphic card that is support by this motherboard as well. Your prompt reply or suggestion is highly appreciated.
Summary: I am a professional 'Photoshop' user and my previous motherboard (Gigabyte 945 GCMXS2) with it's maximum of 2Gb ddr2 ram was hugely insufficient for my needs. I was however happy with my processor (Intel C2D e4500 2.2 Ghz) and didn't want to spend a fortune buying a new computer just for the ram. This is one of the few motherboards that support the now old LGA 775 processors and 8Gb of new ddr3 ram.
