Summary: I gave this a I hate it rating because I receive a dead motherboard. I purchased new memory to fit this board and none of my other 6 computers I built uses DDR 3, all my other boards are DDR 2. They say these are tested, I don't know how this could have passed any test as it did absolutely nothing. Not a beep, or flicker. Their rules states they will not replace defective boards. So I had to send it to MSI, cost 13 postage. Receive another board in reasonable time.
Summary: I bought 2 of these motherboards a few months ago to give new life to two older computers running Windows XP Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 processors. I was looking for reasonably priced motherboard with a LGA 775 socket (which are getting harder to find). MSI products are my current preferred products (motherboards and ATI video cards). Using these MB's I was able to upgrade the memory to DDR3 from DDR2.
Fantactic replacement board that's also great for new builds.

Summary: I've used this motherboard at least 25 times this year and have never had a single problem. It works great with socket 775 Pentium 4D and Core 2 Duo processors, is fast and very easy to install and configure. It's just a well built board that is very dependable. For the price you just can't beat it!

Summary: Also ich finde das Mainboard aufjedenfall besser als das alte. Doch die Intigrierte Grafikkarte ist fürn Arsch! Habe es gebraucht für 30€ bekommen und ich finde es gut. Weiter zu empfehlen eines der besten für diesen Sockel!
Summary: Super Board,holt alles aus meinem Q8400 raus und bietet Super einstell möglichkeiten. Ich hatte in der Vergangenheit immer viel wert auf Asus und Gigabyt boards gelegt,aber für diese Preisklasse können sich beide ne scheibe abschneiden.
