Summary: A good solid motherboard, i haven't had a single issue, its been working like a champ, and paired with 2GB ram, a Nvidia GeForce GT 620 1GB, and a Core 2 Duo E7500, it runs pretty fast and can play most games, it can handle The Sims 2 & 3, Simcity 5 (on lower settings), Skyrim (on default high settings it chooses, haven't really messed around with the settings, i need a controller to really experience the game, i refuse to use the keyboard.
Summary: This board works great. I had very little trouble reinstalling Windows . Instalation of the board into a micro tower, went well. CPU and fan was no problem. Everything went pretty smooth. I would recomend this board to anyone who needs a replacement board for an existing bad board.
Summary: I made one mistake when I upgraded my motherboard to this Intel DG41TY: I didn't check the chipsets and as a result my old CPU didn't work in the new board. Therefore I had to buy a CPU too. However, I was able to switch my 2 Gigs of memory. The result is a fantastic system. Windows 7 works great and with the internal Intel video it produces a performance rating of 3.5. This is double my old board with a dedicated video card.

Supported processors are Dual Core, Core2Duo and Core2Quad....... i.e. LGA775 Socket DDR2 RAM supported. i have Dual Core processor 2.7Ghz with DDR2 4GB RAM... and its flying on windows 8 and just boot in 33 seconds believe me or not guys.....
