Summary: Ok let me tell you the story, sinse i bught this brand new motherbord I really have a good impression of the product, the price was too good to let it go, so I decided to buy me one of this motherbords, now lets go to the poit, I perfectly installed the motherboard with a new 500w power supply and 2GB ram memory,with a processor intell pentium dual core, and my old computer's 200GB IDE hard drive, everything was ok untill the moment I try to install the operating sistem...
Summary: This is a great little board! It handles almost every Socket 775 processor, and has enough overclocking features to satisfy most needs. I bought this for installing Snow Leopard 10.6.4 and it runs 64bit, with everything working, with only one automatic install patch. Comment back on this review for more information on how to do this. It's the easiest thing ever. I only have 2 problems with this board: 1) It only has two RAM slots.
Summary: If you need a excellent value motherboard for an Intel core 2 processor for general purpose computing then this is your baby. Easy to set up and install has 4 sata ports, handles 8g of ddr2 800 ram, making it a good Win7 bd. Not a lot of expansion card slots,but enough to handle most things. 1 PCI EX 16 for your video, a PCI EX 1, and 2 PCI slots that would be good to use one for an Esata card for quick external backups.
Summary: THIS WILL BE MY SECOND MOTHER BOARD I HAVE PURCHASED THE FIRST ONE WAS FOR MY COMPUTER AND THE SECOND FOR MY MOTHER'S COMPUTER. THIS MOTHER BOARD IS VARY FAST BOTH WITH THE DUO AND THE QUAD CORE PROCESSOR AND 8 GIG OF MEMORY TO BACK IT UP.
