Most Favorable Review
MSI K8N NEO3-F 754 NVIDIA nForce4 4X ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI K8N NEO3-F 754 NVIDIA nForce4 4X ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: .S-ATA II @ 1.5GB/S .Yes, it does support Native Command Queing =D .PCI Express .Live Update actually works .Pretty cheap .Excellent tech support .More

Cons: DO NOT use ClockGen to overclock your system. Mine damaged either the bios chip rom or the clock generator, disabling access to the BIOS. Flashing or reseting the CMOS didn't help. Fortunately, MSI's tech support is very responsive and was able to RMA it the following day. It's not the board's fault, it's actually mine. There's always a risk to overclocking. I suggest you do it through the BIOS.

Overall Review: I love Newegg.

D-Link DI-524 High Speed Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
D-Link DI-524 High Speed Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g

Pros: Paired with a Zonet ZEW2500P. Signal is great. This was the first time I ever setup a wireless network and it was easier than I thought. Works fine with the drivers from the CD.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: It took a while for me to figure out how to setup the wep key. On the router's config. you have to click on the "Home" tab to enter the setup. From there, you can enable WEP Protection. To get to the router configuration, go to internet explorer and type your router's ip address. Newegg and the fast deliveries are awesome!

ASUS K8N 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Booted right up without any problems. It's fast and very stable It's been running fine for a few months. This board it great for non-gamers that it doesn't have PCI-Express. Those still stuck with AGP but would like to transfer to PCI-E later, there are hybrid boards such as the MSI NEO3-F (Check compatibility list first), which i also own.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Newegg and the fast deliveries are awesome!

Cons: None
