Great board, for the Price


MSI Technical support is great. I had a problem on my older board, the Northbridge fan was starting to die, and The Overnighted the part to me, they didn't tell me they did, so I was a little surprised to find a part from MSI sitting on my desk when I...

Almost everything about this board is great ; I've used it in two other computers that I've built and both have run flawlessly for over 8 months

No Firewire (IEEE1394), you could always solder the connection to the board, but I'm not getting paid enough to do that, so I don't bother

EggCellent Upgrade


Since the upgrade was from an MSI MB to another, Windows just asked for the drivers and was able to update software without having to reinstall OS.

Wanted to upgrade from another MSI MB because of the NVIDIA chip has better support & performance than previous MB ; Windows XP SP2, Athlon64 3700, 1GB Kingston (2-512mb), IDE Maxtor, Saphire PCI-E 850XT. Pretty satisfied with upgrade
