Really good value board

Richard R., Newegg
29 April 2008
  • Summary: Board was an upgraded for an existing computer. Actually, all I kept was the old case and keyboard. It's a sleeper/junkyard gamer for the teenager. Link the MSI board with a MSi vid card and you'll get above average performance. We're getting high frame rates (60-using an older 15 in.
  • Pros: Excellent upgrade path. Uses all AM2 CPu's. Says it's OK for Phenoms. Rated as a 'Black' series board. Went together well, mounting points were precision, aligned perfectly first try. Fired right up (I use a remote speaker to peep the board before I go crazy installing the cards) All sound, BIOS ...
  • Cons: None really, not for what I was doing. I wanted an above average board with a strong upgrade path.

MSI K9N6SGM-V board

Leslie K., Newegg
23 April 2008
  • Pros: If you want a reliable,good,fast, main board this is an excellent choice. It worked great from the first time I started it up. Reliability is critical with a main board, because of all the problems you can have if it doesn't work right. I will be an MSI customer next time also.
  • Cons: Be sure all you need is two SATA connections and two IDE devices.

Excellent MB

Anonymous, Newegg
15 April 2008
  • Summary: Excellent buy for Budget building
  • Pros: I have this same MB but bought it from another site and I'll tell you what its way better than what i used to have. I have an AMD Athalon 64 x2 running at 2GHz and 2gig of ram and a 8500GT Graphics card and it runs UT3 perfect at 720p.
  • Cons: None at all

Great Mobo.

Anonymous, Newegg
6 April 2008
  • Summary: Newegg shipped it to me FAST.
  • Pros: Great MicroATX board for AMD chips. Cheap and reliable, runs great in my office computer and since I dont care about graphics, the onboard videocard performs with no problem.
  • Cons: Ugh, Asus mobos are picky about their ram. Just shop from corsair if you don't want to have any problems.

'Meh'

Joseph K., Newegg
27 March 2008
  • Pros: From other reviews, seems to be stable.
  • Cons: The proc it shipped with was defective or something, because I've replaced pretty much every part in my build except this and the processor and it still fails to boot. The manual was tricky and poorly-written. I have still wasted months and about $100 that I would have liked to keep on this build...

Good Quality, Limited Slots

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2008
  • Summary: Great bang for the buck. Running Windows Vista with Windows Experience ratings in the 4's for everything but graphics. Graphics ratings, which is using the onboard chip, are at 3. Plan to install a PC Express card down the road and that should improve.
  • Pros: Bought this board to update my son's computer, which was still running off parts made back in 2002-2003. With AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Brisbane and 2 GB A-Data DDR2 800 RAM, it proved to be an economical update. No PC Express graphics card yet, but with onboard video chip, he can run his Star Wars ...
  • Cons: While there are two SATA connectors on the board, there is only one IDE connector. Since the computer being upgraded only had one hard drive and one DVD/CDROM unit, the board was fine for this upgrade. However, I had previously had them connected on separate IDE connectors on the old board and I ...

GREAT board!

Robert K., Newegg
20 March 2008
  • Pros: Worked out of the box with PCLinuxOS. Only had to add the nVidia driver from the PCLOS repository to get full resolution and eye candy. Bought 2G Corsair, AMD 64 X2 4200, and DVDRW at the same time. Added a cheap box and a name brand 500W PSU for 9.99 after rebate. Added a flash card reader into ...
  • Cons: NONE. I love this board.

Decent board for the price

Scott H., Newegg
12 March 2008
  • Summary: Could only use 4 of the 6 mounting holes with the case I was using. Don't really know if others have complained of this.
  • Pros: Price of course. MSI reputation.
  • Cons: Wouldn't boot up from the start. No POST or anything. Went to MSI's website and visited the FAQ's on no POST. Changed the CMOS jumper from save (pins 1&2) to clear (pins 2&3). Waited the 15 seconds, then put it back to 1&2 and got a good POST with a "CMOS CHECKUM BAD" error, but booted with fail-...
