2 out of 5 eggsHigh failure rate

Pros: Nice board till it fails

Cons: High failure rate

Other Thoughts: Built quite a few with this board, no problems till a year or 2 later. All except one burned up on the corner by the RAM slots - enough to blacken the adjoining metal of the case. Got RMA replacements for some, others out of warranty. Just posting in case anyone else has the same problem - you are not alone

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Budget Board, But a few flaws

Pros: This motherboard booted up perfectly the first time it was installed. The bios is really easy to understand and I was easily able to overclock an Athlon 64 X2 2.6 GHZ processor to 3.1 GHZ using the bios.

The Radeon 2100 graphics are pretty solid on board for the price. Overall I would buy it again if I needed another board for a budget build

Cons: One of the RAM slots did not work. The first RAM slot would hold 2 GB as promised, but the 2nd slot failed to work. I didn't need the slot anyhow so there was no since in RMAing it, but be aware of that.

Other Thoughts: I build PCs for a living, I personally would look for a different model of the same price before I went with this one. It could have been a rare fluke with my motherboard, but I won't risk it on a customers computer.

However if this is the only option available to you or it's the cheapest option it is a decent board.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Linux Workstation

Pros: Built two as first PCs for my grandsons- worked out of the box Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex onto 80 gb HDD. Paired with AMD Sempron 3800. Has 4 SATA ports on board. Video is acceptable and Ubuntu Linux drivers work fine with.

Cons: None Observed so far

Other Thoughts: Installed the two K9A2GMs into Apevia's Q-Pack cases. Fine combo. Was able to have two complete computers for <$800. UPS delivered right to my front door two days earlier than I thought they would: ANother perfect combo: Newegg and UPS! Woo Hoo!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great budget board that has legacy ports (PS/2, parallel, serial, VGA), loads of useful features and has headroom for future upgrades.

Cons: Waking from S3 Standby causes the ethernet to disappear, comes back after computer restart, updated drivers do not fix the issue and the mobo BIOS appears to be newer then the ones listed on the site (I think, BIOS says 2.65 while site says 2.0)
The Northbridge heatsink is burning hot to the touch if not actively cooled.

Other Thoughts: If I had to nitpick, this board does not have those solid capacitors that most new boards do but I am not surprised since this is an older board.
As long as you dont care about S3 and have active cooling on the Northbridge, you will be satisfied with this board.

Pros: Great inexpensive board.

Cons: I have 2 sticks of DDR2 800 with heat spreaders that will not fit this board,but had more sticks laying around so it wasn't a big problem

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd board from MSI and no problems yet

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal for inexpensive basic 2nd PC

Pros: Dirt cheap. Easy to setup.
Works successfully with Crucial 2GB RAM sticks (PC6400, 800Mhz) X 2 for 4GB RAM total.
Paired with a Brisbane X2 2.3Ghz processor, scrounged a case and pre-existing power supply - makes for a great zippy little extra PC for my girlfriend who does not game.

Cons: none really. Very pleased.

Other Thoughts: You probably could game on it OK for the somewhat older titles if you got a decent GPU.

I bought a Rosewill PCI IDE card so I could use up some old PATA drives.

I didn't buy this for a bleeding edge flagship PC. Just wanted something quick, reliable, inexpensive and pain-free. Here it is.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard so far!

Pros: Runs great.
Small, easy to hook up.
Price.

Cons: If you're using a GeForce 8800, or any other large video card, its very hard to fit anything else. I have just enough room for my sound card.

Ram slots sit a little close to the heat sink, need small fingers to hook up the first stick.

Other Thoughts: Glad I have small fingers to fit around everything.

Will post more if anything goes wrong in the next few months.
