Summary: This is a great motherboard no problems. Installed Windows 7 pro no problem. I have had problems with other Motherboard manufacturers. I havent had a problem with Intel. I own lots of Intel products.
Summary: (4 gigs ram and i3core-540 3.06 GHz processor) Home Theater PC Win7 Pro. Fast, great performer with Kingston KVR1066D3N7/1G. Probably the fastest most versatile PCs I've ever built. Suggest you update bios to the latest on Intel website to avoid any conflicts. HDMI out works independently of the VGA/DVI outputs, so you can view on another TV/monitor simultaneously. HD audio & video are great. Also runs virtual PC (XP Mode, XP in a window) so I can use all my older apps.
Summary: I bought this motherboard for a mid-grade media pc I was building. I needed a micro-ATX board for the Lian Li PC-C37 media case. (BTW a very nice case, very sleek). 4 gigs of ram and the i3core-540 processor, this thing has more than enough resources to run a media pc. Usually I prefer separate video and audio cards but because I was ballon-on-a-budget, I wanted the video and audio cards to be integrated.
