Well made. Very respectable performance for the price, but you are better off with the 939 version

 

This is a decent, well made, easy to build system with an Intel chipset at a good price, which is a big plus for many people. It is quite small as well, but it is 915, which is dated, and single core capable only. If you want to build an easy, very...

If you like AMD, the Vintage-AH1 AMD Socket 939 has the same form factor and is a much better machine. It is dual-core capable (though dual core 939s are not to be found everywhere), better onboard graphics (ATI), better sound, 2 extra USB ports on the...

simple

 

excellent basic computing/office computer - no ide hdd with dual optical drives; requires sata hdd - replaced case fan with antec_tricool, very quiet w. enough cooling - 3 systems worked great with: pentium p4 630/celeron d 360 corsair ddr pc3200 1 gb...

simple, compact design ; very easy to put together ; sata cable included

case fan is super loud, obnoxious ; unsightly gap between dual optical drives

Easy setup, connections for IDE or SATA, enough scalability for most users, 800MHz FSB, Hyper Threading, Dual Channel RAM, good airflow in case - even with just the single rear fan - works with WinXP Pro 64x (used P4 630) (idle at 42c with stock HSF -...

Included "Probe" (the bundled system monitoring software) won't read case fan RPM since there is nowhere for the Control line to plug into - no video control options in BIOS ; You need to remove the front panel to remove the blanks for 5.25 and the 3.5...

great

 

My AGP card worked fine, i put in a GeForce 6200 and i can play battlefield 2 fine on medium settings. i havent tried high settings

Consumer review by:

stay away from ASUS

 

This would be a zero star review if they allowed it. First of all, this system will not recognize an AGP graphics card. At first, I was trying an ATI-based card. After jacking with it for several days, reviews began popping up here and elsewhere that...

Consumer review by:

good

 

The board has nice options. Mine came with an issue. I purchased an agp (9600 xt) card thinking that the specifications that were listed was a mistake stating that it can take pci express and agp. But now the board doesn't come with the option to...
