Worked for 2 years then NB/GPU failed

Abraham A., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Board was running with a slightly older tech Athlon X2 5200+, 2GB of DDR2 800, an Nvidia 8800GTS 320MB which was all it needed for basic desktop use. On newer boards I go with all solid caps and other signs of quality. There is nothing more annoying than dis-functional hardware.

Joseph W., Newegg
29 November 2012

AM2+

KStro9, Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: This motherboard is a little bit mislabeled. It does support AM3 processors. However this board uses DDR2 memory and although AM3 processors can step down to that, they natively run on DDR3, which this doesn't support.
