Still going strong!

Rian W., Newegg
23 December 2011
  • Summary: I've had this motherboard for over 2 years now. The essentials started with it, an AMD Athlon X2, and 2gb of RAM. It still has the 2gb of RAM, but that will be doubled just after Christmas, since I just ordered another 2gb stick.
  • Pros: Runs cool, quiet, stable, has taken everything I've thrown at it.
  • Cons: Has only one IDE port, and that became a problem as I had two hard drives and a DVD-RW drive that were all IDE. I ended up temporarily remedying the situation with an IDE to USB cable poked through the back plate and into a USB socket.

Decent board

Eric M., Newegg
20 February 2010
  • Summary: Picked up because it's MSI, which I've always had luck with, and it's cheap. I had to throw a work system together quickly. It's run very solidly for some time now. Fortunately the old Hard drive I put in was PATA, with an SATA DVD. If I want to upgrade, though, I have only one more SATA port.
  • Pros: Cheap board, stable, small.
  • Cons: CPU support (not many current Phenom II or Athlon IIs officially supported.) Only two SATA ports (which is what cost it an egg.)

Good Budget Board

Donald H., Newegg
18 January 2010
  • Summary: I used this board to build my wife a basic office machine. She uses it for web surfing, video streaming, social networking stuff, office apps, digital pics, and iTunes. It's been running for about six months with no crashes or freezes. And that's all I can expect for a sub-$50 mobo.
  • Pros: Boots. Inexpensive. Everything works. All of the components listed below worked from the start. Nothing DOA. I first installed XP Pro and then Windows 7 a few months later. XP ran great and 7 hums along just fine. This is an "always on" machine and so far, so good. The whole build was right at $3...
  • Cons: For the price , none. PCI Express x16 2.0 would be nice but no entry-level boards have 2.0. The bios is a bit antiquated but it's a $45 board. I didn't expect anything more.

Great board for the $$$...

Fredrick F., Newegg
17 January 2010
  • Summary: 1755 marks on 3dMark03 if anyone cares. PCI-e x 16 slot is nice to add more current video. Makes a great upgrade path to a Quad-core for the future. Up and running, including disassemby of old board etc... in less than an hour (not including updating Windows etc...). Suprisingly fast.
  • Pros: Worked on 1st try, no hassles. 6150SE integrated video is way better than Intel GMA 950 IGP, ATi Radeon Express 200 IGP, & Chrome 9 Via IGPs. Supports AM2, AM2+, AM3 CPU's. 7.1 Sound 10/100 ethernet, 2 SATA headers, 1 IDE, plenty of USB ports. Installed 2GB DDR2 800, Athlon 64 X2 5000 AM2+, Logis...
  • Cons: Packaging states Geforce 7 series IGP, device manager says 6150SE IGP. Small gripe, but a bit confusing. Took an egg away from score.

User Review

  • Summary: There is no digital surround-sound output. I bought it for a media PC and this would have been nice. It wasn't mentioned in the specs. It does have internal SPDIF out for an HDMI video card, but only analog surround output. So I'll have to buy a sound card now.
  • Pros: Great board with plenty of features for the price
  • Cons: None really.

These always work for me!

  • Summary: Just remember that if you have to factory RMA these things they are sent to Canada. For those of us in the USA there are extra fees for shipping. Never had to send one in but it is something one should be aware of.
  • Pros: MSI makes a great board. Have bought 5 of these in the last year and they have all been flawless. Just bolt it in and it works!
  • Cons: umm... A decal would be cool but for the price I can live without one.

Not the greatest MB in the world

James S., Newegg
5 January 2010
  • Summary: I got this MB to up date my wifes Old eMachine. It did the job just like I wanted so if you are looking for a good cheap MB you won't make a mistake with it.
  • Pros: Its Cheap, It booted right up and runs at 31 degrees C with a Artic Alpine 64 Pro cpu coooler. AMD 3 2.7GH cpu.
  • Cons: Needs to have 2 IDE ports and needs 2 more SATA ports. Had to install an old SIL 680 IDE Controller card in the first PCI slot to run the 2 DVD burners. The only reason I didn't give it 5 eggs

Good, stable platform

John J., Newegg

  • Summary: Fried one board - but my fault took a chance on cheap power supply.
  • Pros: Built about 10 systems. Always works out of the box. Good for home or office use.
  • Cons: Only 2 SATA but there are workarounds if you need more
