Summary: Really nice board. I wanted to try building a gaming rig on something better than the LGA 775 socket, and this filled the bill. I put in a lower-end CPU and 8 GB of ram, figuring I would have plenty of room to upgrade when I felt like it. But it does exactly what I want it to, so I'm not in any hurry to mess with it. Glad I bought it!
Summary: Pair with a Pentium G2030 this makes a great basic computer. For $110 I got this board and the CPU and was able to get a basic computer up and running that works great and runs cool. No complaints what so ever.
Summary: Bought this item for a build, replacing an older photo-processing PC. Fantastic motherboard, allowed me to run WindowsXP, Vista, Windows7, and Mac OSX. Full ubuntu support, and all around a great purchase.
Summary: I bought this board, and when it showed up at the post office, I was ecstatic. Today I got my Intel Celeron 2.40 GHz CPU, so I could finally put together. I put it together, checked everything, and tried to turn it on. It didn't work. I re-checked three times, and it still doesn't work. This can only mean the mobo is fried. I plan on getting another, preferably free, this time. Hopefully it works better than this one.
Summary: I was doing a build for a friend before Christmas. I received product in plenty of time. Only problem It would not work. I contacted seller for a return authorization three times. Ended up purchasing another one from same seller to finish the build. The second one worked great just as it should. I do understand that from time to time this will happen. However TigerDirect needs to work on it's customer service.
Summary: Ordered two of them for a new build because of the price/rebate. The first one arrived with one of the capacitors in the box instead of being on the board! The 2nd one does not recognize either of my two video cards in the PCIE x16 slot! Hopefully the replacement for the 1st won't make it 3 out of 3, but 2 out of 3 defective or damaged on arrival is already a pretty bad ratio. The amount of time you'll waste on these is not even worth getting them for free.
