Summary: I bought this mother board a few years ago, and it is still running my current system. I have changed other parts of my computers many times, but this is one of the only pieces that has stayed the same and hasn't degraded in quality at all over the past few years.
Summary: I bought the MSI P45 Neo3-FR Core 2 Duo ATX Intel P45 Express P45 NEO3-FR motherboard the three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive motherboard. It has a multitude of possibility, video card PCI-E, multi USB connectors, multi SATA connectors etc. The motherboard size is perfect for carrying in my case. I have no complaint for this motherboard system, the bios settimg is very complet and easy to set.
Summary: i ordered the main board and got it the next day of ordering it so that was a big plus in my book but i would say it is only an ok mother board worth the money i paid they did send me a falty one at first but quickly sent me a new one the next day and now after some tenkering with the bios to get it to acsept the hd radeon 3650 i got it is now working fine.
Summary: I have made numerous Pcs and this is the first time that I have gotten a motherboard that will not function. I have an earlier NEO3 motherboard that I wanted to update. When I got around to installing this motherboard, it would not run my computer. It would start, stop, and then start again. It would not boot and read the bios. It never got around to looking for the keyboard and mouse. When I reinstalled the older NEO3 motherboard, everything worked fine.

I was looking for new hardware to upgrade from my old PC: Intel Pentium 4 3.0ghz HT ECS MoBo 1gb RAM (non Dual-Channel) eVga e-GeForce 8400gs 512mb Maxtor 250gb SATA HD 5400rpm Windows Vista Home Premium x86 and after looking for some hardware, I just found this MoBo...
