Most Favorable Review

Great Board A+ but PCI spacing issues

ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Excellent stability for Quad Core. Works great with 1066 DDR2

Cons: PCI slots are very close to PCIE slots making cooling of video cards difficult if you need to use both PCI slots and multiple video cards its a real issue. Also SATA 90 degree connectors are tough to connect to in my case "ANTEC ATLAS 550"

Overall Review: It was between 3 boards (MSI,Gigabyte,Asus) this seemed the best according to Reviews using bench marks and extrem tests on several sites. But if I was to do it again the Gigabyte might be a better solution. Never sure till you try. ;) I have 9Yrs experience working with computers, large networks and servers.

Most Critical Review

No QAM for XP

VisionTek 900192 TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe HDTV Tuner PVR w/Remote

Pros: Nice hardware design.

Cons: No QAM for XP as Stated on Box it has QAM Support for Vista. No where does it say it supports QAM for XP. Most cable providers send HD channels in the clear at 256 QAM. Also software was buggy for TV bluescreened once, Thruview wouldnt work for TV(Thruview worked for PCI version when I tested same software must be hardware.) wouldnt tune correctly several times and it would initialize with controls not responding this is all on a fresh tested install that included XP Pro SP2.

Overall Review: I have 9Yrs experience working with computers, large networks and servers. I owned a AIW 8500 for 5 yrs now. Im forced to find a different solution since newer boards support PCIE and no longer AGP. Bummer I have read many reviews and Avermedia's card I will be trying next.
