5 out of 5 eggsSimple budget board.

Pros: I had a bunch of extra computer parts lying around after upgrading my desktop, so I decided to make a dedicated Linux box. I was skeptical of this board, but it seemed like a good budget board for this system.

Installation was easy, and the board has never failed to POST. Does everything I want it to for a fantastic price. Onboard video works well for Linux.

Cons: Not a thing so far.

Other Thoughts: OS: Ubuntu 9.04
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 @ 2.33GHz
RAM: 1GB GSKILL 240-pin DDR2 800
DVD DRIVE: LG 22x DVD Burner
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W
CASE: Rosewill R101-P-BK Mid-tower (cheap!)
GPU: Onboard (I'm running Linux, why would I buy a graphics card? :)

5 out of 5 eggsNice Basic board

Pros: This has been a very good, trouble-free board for a system that I put together from extra parts I had lying around. Booted the first time and has been nothing but stable with a Core 2 Duo 2.13 mhz, 2GB ram and a wireless LAN card. Reasonably fast. Good product at a reasonable price.

Cons: None really, as long as your expectations are realistic. Limited room for expansion but what can you expect at this price.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI mobo

Pros: This has been a great running board for over 6 months now. No glitches. Maybe not a gaming board but then I'm not a gamer...

Cons: NO 64 bit support. I tried to find 64 bit drivers from msi website and they are not available.

Other Thoughts: System is this board, E 5200 dual core cpu, 1 Tb WD HD, and IDE optical drives. DVD rip takes about 30 mins instead of 3 hrs. on my old p4. AVI to DVD conversion takes about 30 mins also..I'm pleased with this board,,just wish I could get 64 bit drivers.

1 out of 5 eggsEPIC FAIL

Pros: I have used an previous version of this board for almost a year. Lots of potential.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Great little board, good price, worked flawlessly out of the box.

Cons: Manual is pretty brief, doesn't even mention the onboard video in the Specifications section.

Other Thoughts: Paired this with an Intel Q8400 Quad core, 2x2GB Patriot Viper DDR2 memory and installed Kubuntu 9.04 64-bit. It screams! I don't care much about OC'ing. Of course I wish it supported more PATA devices and more max memory.... but I knew what I was getting when I ordered it, so not a con. I'll be able to grow with this system as I ditch my IDE drives and get SATA.

1 out of 5 eggsNO SECURITY

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Absolutely no way to prevent an F11 boot menu option. Tried the latest BIOS, still no security to prevent this. If you want your computers secure, don't buy this.

5 out of 5 eggsNo frills cheap mobo

Pros: For $45 you really can't go wrong if you're looking for a standard entry level motherboard. It runs and so long as you check on the manufacturers website for supported ram, which you should do with ANY motherboard, it works perfectly fine.

Cons: There really isn't any. It's cheap and it works.

Other Thoughts: Stuffed into a system with a C2D E6300, 4 gigs corsair XMS & 9400GT.
