5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Has lasted over 5 years of almost daily gaming use, a very good board for a budget build

Cons: Eventually has started to fail, some USB ports don't run all the time, the audio jacks are a little bit picky, but still. Five years. That's a good board.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost flawless

Pros: This board fit the bill perfectly: mATX, onboard graphics that are useful, and HTPC capable.

Cons: Be careful when putting everything together. The holder for the sata2 channel pulled off, but went back on completely. The nodes all over the board do not seem snug and secure. The optical port could be located better.

Other Thoughts: Played UT04 well - as expected. Seems to be stable, and works well. Keep it in rgb, for some odd reason, it started inverting colors in the alt mode. Gave it a 4 because things could have been better made, but would've been a 5 otherwise. A P.S. to newegg, please photograph EVERYTHING that comes with it. Bought an extra sata cable because you only show one cord included, but there were 2.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Perfect

Pros: Optical audio, Nvidia 7050 chipset, 8.1 audio, onboard video, large northbridge heatsink, form factor, 4 memory slots.

Cons: Rec'd minus one working USB port. Not sure if onboard ethernet, firewire, or optical audio works.

Other Thoughts: Quality control. I've been purchasing and receiving a lot of garbage lately. There is really no excuse for the faulty USB port. This is for a HTPC, so 1/4 rear ports won't make much difference, and most likely I won't RMA, but the product still is subpar. I've tested as much as I can test on the board. I only hope when I find use for features such as firewire, and optical audio, that these ports work as well. I'm otherwise satisfied with the board.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: I love the HDMI output, and the onboard graphocs. Everything went without a hitch, and I'm running Vista Ultimate through it, and all the drivers were compatible.

Cons: If you have an older HD TV like I do, the lack of s-video out on the onboard graphics is a pain, but I bought a card to fix that.

Other Thoughts: Newegg continues to amaze.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: HDMI output and included HDMI-to-DVI cable, optical audio output. Nearly perfect (see cons) motherboard for a MythTV HTPC.

Cons: No serial port (COM) or header on the motherboard. It makes life a little harder if you have a serial port IR blaster or IR receiver.

Other Thoughts: Using linux kernel 2.6.20+ is needed. I'm using 2.6.22 and when I run lspci I get mostly "unknown" device entries, but it all seems to work. <SHRUG>. If you use the proprietary NVIDIA drivers you'll need version 100.14.11 or higher

4 out of 5 eggsNice HTPC MoBo

Pros: HDMI & S/PDIF Out are great features when using as a HTPC

Cons: HDMI & S/PDIF are too close together. Had to "modify / trim the cable connectors in order to connect both.

Other Thoughts: It took a bit longer to get the "bugs" out and have optical out. Driver uploads etc.

5 out of 5 eggsForgot to Add

Pros: Sorry to add another review (don't mean to skew the rating). Mobo is good

Cons: Only thing I had to do was download and install the latest version of the Nvidia chipset driver.. version 163.75. That did the trick and made the board cruise

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Mobo for HTPC

Pros: Well designed board, that did not require triple jointed fingers to connect cables or CPU. Extra HDMI-DVI cable was a bonus. I primarily wanted a mobo with HDMI to my HDTV. Setup and installation was flawless. Video Audio worked straight out of the setup (did not have to tweak).

Cons: None really. If there was a 2nd onboard LAN it would have been nice. Manual could have been more descriptive with connections (but adequeate).

Other Thoughts: I want to reiterate that this was the perfect mobo for a HTPC if you have a HDTV with HDMI. I got rid of one set of cables with this setup.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great feature set
Overclockability

Cons: Bad default settings

Other Thoughts: I was having major stability problems with this board until I did some research and noticed that there is an issue with the default (Auto) settings for DRAM timing and Voltages. Look up the specs for your RAM and be sure to set the DRAM voltage in the Softmenu to its spec, and adjust the DRAM timings manually as well. This has so far solved all stability issues for me.

2 out of 5 eggsnot a gaming motherboard

Pros: Lots of USB ports, audio, firewire, hdmi output... worked well until I installed my video card.

Cons: Incompatible with GeForce 8800 GT video card. Even after updating to the latest BIOS (released Dec 07), the motherboard continued to have unacceptable problems.

Other Thoughts: ABit seems to do a lot of things right... but I bought this motherboard so I could have a fairly portable gaming machine. Mission FAILED.
