Pros:

Great for entry level single GPU builds, as it supports one NVIDIA GPU, or multiple XFire GPUs.

Cons:

This board is utter trash, and make sure you literally go over every spec to make sure you have EVERYTHING perfect for this board. Says multi-GPU support, so naturally I think ok, so SLI and Xfire. NOPE! Only Xfire compatible, which makes ZERO sense. If you plan on getting more than one NVIDIA GPU this isn't for you. Also make sure to click on the link to check out the memory compatibility, otherwise enjoy buying that sweet 2100 speed RAM you have been saving your lunch money for, but having this mobo clock it down to 1333 or not even recognize it at all. I've never seen such a touchy and restricting motherboard before. The fact that it supports Xfire but NOT SLI is ridiculous, and doesn't even make sense. It has horrible OC capabilities in the BIOS, and only has stereo sound.

Other Thoughts:

Get off this page, you are wasting your time unless you plan on getting AMD GPUs....and even then this mobo is questionable for that price.

Manufacturer Response:
