This review is from: Intel BOXDP45SG LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: There are lots of newegg reviews of this thing from back when it was new.
Fastest most full featured atx board still buyable. 2 16x pcie 2.0 means you can SLI an older video card to keep the party going for another couple years (and atm haswell looks like it's going to suck for desktop gaming)
This thing used to be a 175$ board, and it's 1300 speed memory makes italmost as fast as the hottest stuff on the market for most things. With a q9550 in it, it's competitive with an i5 Again for many but not all things. Gaming is one of them though.
Cons: Famous for being extremely picky about what GPUs and memory it will take. My best info atm is ddr3 1333 (10666) only. It's coming in the mail. We shall see.
Other Thoughts: If you can make the thing run with your hardware it's a giant win. If you can't it's a frizbee.READ FULL REVIEW
