Summary: I have older hardware, so I needed a mother board that could sustain it. This did the trick. Down side is the HD audio drivers. they seem to be sub-par. Other than that it's worked like a charm.
Summary: I bought This motherboard to replace another brand board that was powering my home server. After years of faithful service the old board died. I wanted the replacement motherboard to be able to use the core 2 quad that I paid a lot of money for when they first came out.
Summary: This board, along with a Core2 Quad Q6600, 6GB RAM, Windows XP Professional x64, processor performed outstanding this last and final year of college. In pursuit of a B.A in CIS Programming I was using Visual Studio, Adobe CS3, MSSQL, WampServer which require increased performance from the system.
Summary: Great for a budget PC. Sturdy Intel design and user friendly drivers. Good warrenty and customer service Pros: Supported by Intel, Easy driver installs, all the standard features you would need. Plenty of space. Tons of USB ports/headers. Cheap! Wide support of ram types and companies.
Summary: This motherboard is a great buy for casual users who are not thinking of overclocking or don't mind that only 1.8v memory seems to be the only way to max out your memory, the mother board does work as advertized. Works great with Core 2 Quad and 4 gig of memory, sound is acceptable.
Summary: I have had this board running every day for over 9 months now (Enermax 720W, E6850, Mushkin DDR2-800, evga 8800GTX, Vista Premium 64, SATA RAID) and it's a real nice setup. Went together well. No overclocking, no major hassles.
