Summary: This is a very good motherboard for me at least. I am not a gamer just serf the net and work with Libre Office. For me it has plenty of speed and very good performance. And because it is a third generation board the cost is low which one of the things I look for in computer parts to build my computers; make it work well and spend little. I highly recommend this board.
Great Product, Customer Service could be better...

Summary: Package received in poor condition by USPS. The CB was only wrapped in bubble wrap and packing peanuts top and bottom in a card board box only slightly larger than the CB. One corner of the box was crushed and there was clear visible damage to the video output connectors on the board and the board was bent like a wet noodle. I took photos and contacted the seller through the Amazon complaint system.
Summary: The Intel DG35EC is a super quality socket 775 motherboard. I've used this board in combination with their E8500 processor in over 100 system builds and have never had to send a board in under warranty yet.
Summary: This is one excellent MB! I've been an Asus fan for years, but I've grown tired of trying to get newly updated (stable) drivers from them. So I picked intel this time. Not the most over-clockable mb ever produced, but it's fast, stable and the latest win7 drivers work excellent!
Summary: This board is great for those who may be looking to make the transition from PATA to SATA (1 PATA & 4 SATA11) and VGA to HDMI (has both ports). or just like having that option. Used this board with the following components with no problems Hard Drive: WD 1TB 7200rpm 16MB cache Sata11.
