Excerpt: When I burnt my other mainboard out (an aging p2 MSI variant) I needed something urgently to replace it - being mid program. So, off I went to my usual websites, and spotted this. It seemed to have reasonable reviews, so i purchased one not thinking it'd be hugely special, just reliable and simple.
Excerpt: I have used MSI boards for years finding them generally very reliable.. I have had a problem with the USB on this board and there are reports of radom power offs and crashes which can be read elswhere - I have not suffered from this. Expansion is excellent and the board is very quick.
Pros: Plenty of expansion slots
Cons: Some serial numbers have had random shutdown problems
