Excellent Motherboard

Intel BOXDG965WHMKR LGA 775 Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard with lots of features. Quality throughout. An excellent product. Read about which operating systems Intel supports for the board, and memory certification requirements before purchase.

Cons: You need to look carefully at the memory you plan to use to make sure it is approved/certified/tested for use specifically with this motherboard. Intel doesn't support server operating systems on this motherboard. I bought it to use with the new Windows Home Server which runs on top of Windows Server 2003. So the Intel supplied drivers for both the video and the system monitoring application failed to install. But Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2003 do run fine, just std video and without the system monitoring app. Intel said "sorry, server OS's are not supported." I told them they were missing a bet since undoubtedly there will be a lot of opportunity for this motherboard for this application. They said they would pass my comment up the line.

Overall Review: Excellent value! Quality product!

great for upgrade!
