Pros: love it, has a great refresh its bright and crisp, if I had had more money I would have bough a second one for dual monitors.

Cons: none that I have found so far

Pros: Love it should have bought a second one to run dual cards but for now my gaming is so much better then it was with an AGP card.

Cons: had a little trouble setting it up in Windows XP Professional x64

Pros: Since this was exactly what I was looking for to meet a particular need it had all the features I was looking for. It runs great like the last ASUS board I had I will probably buy another ASUS board for the next PC I build.

Cons: I had a rather small case, a mid tower ATX case so I had some issues with heat and the AI quiet fan had to be disabled to keep things cool enough. I installed a 3.4 GHz Pentium D with a retail Intel heat sink and fan. I ended up having to install an extra fan in my case to move more air through my case to keep things cool. It put my fan total at two fans moving air in and one moving air out plus the Power supply fan also pulling air out so it runs a little loud with 4 80MM fans.

Overall Review: I would suggest a large case to have a bit more air volume inside the case and possible liquid cool if you want quiet while it runs.
