I'm lucky?

Pros: I've been running games on high to max settings for 7 years on this mobo, on less than recommended settings.
2x1 GB DDR2 800,
AMD Atholon 64 X2 5600+ (Stock),
PCI-E Nvidia 8800 Ultra,
Sound Blaster X-Fi,
Ageia PhysX PCI Card (Removed 3rd Yr),
Vista 32 bit (1st 6 Yrs),
Win7 64 bit (7th Yr on),

My hdd is the only thing I HAD to replace, I upgraded from an 8800 Ultra to a 250 GTS two years back, and am just now maxing out my ram with 4x2GB sticks at 4-4-4-12

Cons: Not easy to OC, or Update Bios.

Overall Review: I'm just amazed people have issues with PC gaming at all given the longevity of my now weak build. Yet I can still max out AC at 1080p 30-40fps for example. I'm starting my build for 8th gen at the moment but I'm confident It will last even longer than this set up.

Bad, Very bad

Pros: q-connector? even then i question its coolness...

Cons: really bad audio crackling, ran vista on it for about a month and locks up for no apparent reason. chip set is terrible. thought i could try and play through the audio and hopefully fix the locking up but its time for me to part with this "thing". save you $$ and get something with a better chip set. asus has really gone down hill since i last owned one, time to switch it up.

Overall Review: Newegg is the best!

4/ 5

Pros: This is a very nice motherboard and it looks pretty nice too.

Cons: How the slots are set are moderately questionable.

Overall Review: People have complained about the audio not working properly (crackling/breaking) After I installed a new driver from the ASUS website the audio worked perfectly since then.

Great ATX board

Pros: ASUS makes the best. and this board proves it. Comes loaded.
4 SATA - 2 IDE - SLI - 4 DIMMS - 8 GB, DDR2. Awesome Board. Even came with a 4pin molex to SATA connector, which came in handy.

Cons: No real Cons, just that this board is getting to be old technology. Also it only came with 2 SATA cables and one was the bent kind, which can get in the way, but I had like 5 laying around. So All is good.

Overall Review: Everything is well placed on this board, I made a sort of Frankenstien computer useing a mix of old and new parts, and it all work great. and I still have room for expansion.

solid

Pros: All the features of todays technology (socket AM2, ddr2, pci-e, SLI), ASUS! PRICE!

Cons: none really. not a ton of BIOS features, but its got everything that you really NEED. If you're into overclocking just use nTune. I checked onboard sound just for the heck of it and mine was scrambled (before i downloaded the newest chipset drivers) but I planned on using my audigy card anyways so no biggy.

Overall Review: just upgraded all my main components (motherboard, cpu, ram, vid card) and everything went together very nicely. no probs at all. ram voltage is fine for G.Skill F2-6400CL5D which i have 2x1GB of for now

RAM voltage?

Pros: For the guy complaining about the RAM voltage. The RAM I have installed on this MB is rated at 2.1v and works perfectly fine. Please folks, know what you are talking about before knocking a product when you don't fully understand how it works.

Cons: People who complain about things they don't understand about this MB. Learn how to configure the MB properly, don't complain about the MB because of your own shortcommings.

5/ 5

Pros: Worked straight out of the box. Was able to tweak it with ease and have had no problems with it.

Cons: None I can think of

Overall Review: If you are looking to upgrade to a newer MB and have a tight budget, this one is a feasable option.
