Summary: I bought this to make a decent, budget, gaming rig.... I have this board with a q8400 cpu and 8gb of ddr3 at 1066mhz running win7 ultimate 64bit does quite well....I am actually planning to use Linux soon (Ubuntu 64bit) and I love using this thing, for an intel 775 quad core, it runs like a bat out...
Classic DG43RK Desktop board, A little picky to set up, but the Best Socket 775 Board ever made.

Summary: I bought this board for $55.00 not for the price but the fact it was the most modern socket 775 board that I could find, thus giving new life too my Core 2 Quad Q9550 CPU's, 8GB DDR 3 RAM, UEFI BIOS allows easy install HDD larger than 2TB, AHCI controller allows for efficient use of SSD drives.
Summary: I was disapointed when this board started to fail because it was flexing in my case due to an X bar for the cpu cooler, but this motherboard was flawless and I bought another one this time with a push pin instead of the X bar these boards cannot stand X bars please take my word and buy a push pin...
Summary: Board arrived safely and installed easily. Amazon recommended two 4GB sticks of memory which I purchased. Of course they didn't work - three beeps. After much reading I decided I'd try to update the BIOS which supposedly adds support for my memory.
