5 out of 5 eggs Great Board 09/05/2008

This review is from: MSI 945GCM478-L 478 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Bought this to build a home server, modded a VERY proprietary D**l GX270 case to hold this board. Despite some rough handling in less than ideal conditions, it booted perfectly on first try. Very cost effective since the only other things I had to buy were memory and cpu cooler. Everything else was already on hand.

Cons: Really the only complaints are there's only two memory slots and 2 PCI slots, but for my purposes it worked very well.

Other Thoughts: Its getting hard to find parts for 478 machines, I was originally was going to use some DDR RAM I had on hand, but couldn't find a decent priced board that used DDR. I got lucky with Newegg, they had a great deal on some discontinued DDR2 667 ram to go with this board. I now have a home server that I spent all of about $90 to build.
