Summary: I had to replace the motherboard because my power supply went bad and burnt up my motherboard so I was just replacing it with what is in there. it was the first one i replaced myself it was very easy. I also like the idea of up grading.
Summary: The CPU support list for this thing is staggering; it will accept pretty much anything AM2, AM2+, and AM3. Fires right up. Excellent set of bios options. Decent nVidia graphics Problems: Only two slots for DDR2 RAM. Chipset runs hot; either replace the heatsink (which is easily done on this board) or do what I did: replace thermal compound and provide direct ventilation to the chipset.
Summary: MSI is one of the largest motherboard manufacturers in the world. They build oem boards for Acer, Emachines, Compaq, Dell, HP and many more. Their low end boards are no frills, solid and last for years without an issue. Their high end boards are fast, overclock very well, and include lots of extras. The K9N6PGM2-V2 isn't a high end board, but it is built very well and that's exactly why I bought it.
Summary: All in all, I find this to be a very good motherboard. I've installed other motherboards but this one was relatively easy. I did run into a slight problem installing ram, seems the socket for dimm 1 does not seat the ram and secure it too will, I found myself having to readjust it in order to get the system to boot. Other than that, with the speed, accessories, and such, it is nice to finally modernize my computing. This is a fairly good board.
