So far awesome!
Pros: I bought this from Newegg to replace my Asus P4S533-MX micro ATX board. I wanted more PCI slots and the on-board RAID controller. So far this mobo is performing excellant with my P4 3.06Ghz 533fsb HT CPU and 1GB PC2700 DDR. I've read all the danger of the front USB ports and static discharge. I did not attach the front header pins and don't plan to. If I need more USB ports, $xx isn't too much to slap in a USB2 PCI card or add on a USBhub. Even with the old components from the old mobo, the system is performing much better.
Cons: Front USB header static discharge risk
Pros: This vid card works excellant! I didn't bother with the included driver CD.. I immediately downloaded and applied the Nvidia website drivers. Smooth sailing so far and unlike the GeForce MX400 it replaced, my overlay display on my Windows desktop for my HDTV capture card (MyHD MDP-120) doesn't flicker. I'm not a gamer, but an avid video enthusiast and this cards fits the bill for 2D video. With no fan, it is also silent. Good buy w/ rebate.
