Good board overall 05/16/2008
This review is from: ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI
Vga, dvi, and hdmi connectors.
pata (ide) connector and sata connectors are conviently placed.
I can change the bios image to anything I want.
4 built-in usb ports and 3 headers to support up to 6 more.
Came with all the cables I needed.
Has PCI-e 16x slot for future upgrade.
4 Ram slots
Easy bios upgrade with crashfree bios recovery
1 of the sata cables has a L hook on one end which is a little inconvienent.
I can't seem to get the latest AHCI/Raid driver for Vista 32 to install on my Vista Business 32-bit system. That may be because I installed Vista in normal Sata mode first.
Also the manual doesn't describe the bios options very well.
Good intro board with built-in graphics. Later down the road I'll probably upgrade to a nicer graphics card when they drop in price.
