This review is from: ASUS P5WD2 LGA 775 Intel 955X ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Cost effective matching of features to pricetag. Onboard sound can save you a few bucks, quite adequate for gaming.
Cons: Just got to watch out for that bios revision / compatible Intel processor thing.
Other Thoughts: I had bought this, to go with a p4 650, and 2g of ddr2 corsair ram, and a sata2 250gb wdc. Zero problems with posting, boot, and XP install. Just watch out for that processor compatibility hang-up- visit Asus' site for their list of what processors will work out of the box, or will require BIOS flashing first.READ FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: First thing I did to check out the capabilities of the laptop, was install Serious Sam 2 on it. It ran VERY satisfyingly, with full textures at 1024x768.
My only gripe is that this arrived missing a restore disk. If anything goes wrong with the O.S., I could be in trouble...
