Summary: This motherboard is obviously a lower end model but worked perfectly for what I needed. It was excellent and the seller was also excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone needing an older style base level motherboard as I did.
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: My dad's computer broke. I bought this board from Amazon using Prime. The manual was a little difficult to figure out for the non-essential ports, but if you have installed one motherboard you have installed them all so after a little trial and error to get the small lights on the case powered up and whatever non-essential stuff there is. It works, it was cheap, and it will hopefully hold up for a few more years until my dad breaks his computer again.
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.
