Nice Bang For 15 Bucks!

 

If your like me and have scrap parts laying around then this was a steal for the price..even after buying the cheap video card this was still a bargain..My total investment in this was $45...Not bad for a complete HTPC..

Only paid $15 for it-- no headache install-everything worked

Only con is the awful via chrome onboard video (indeed i felt that alone was worth the one egg deduct)--easy cheap remedy, I got a $10 new X600 card on that famous auction site, along with a P4 2.8 for $20..Now i can run windows 7 with decent video

Limited drivers for win 7

 

if you dont need 1080p on board video and windows 7 then it would be fine but even then still uses cpu alot for 1080p

Cheap I only paid $16.00 so that a plus ; good for cheap htpc ; e1500 works no issues and the e1500 is a lot faster ; than the p4 3.2 ; onboard video works with vista plays 1080p @50% cpu usage

only works with older p4 or dual core 65nm cpus ; no win 7 video drivers ; no 45nm cpus ; onboard video works with vista plays 1080p @50% cpu usage

Simple

 

Go to the manufacturer's website to check specific processor compatibility.

Fastest build I ever had. Everything went together smoothly and worked right at first boot ; Biostar makes good boards, as long as you pay attention to details they'll work for years

Supports SLI, but Newegg doesn't sell the combination of NVIDIA-based cards necessary to try it out ; Board printing is offset or just plain off target, so I had to look at the manual to verify pinout ; Does not include an LPT port for those with older...

Fine motherboard

 

I upgraded to this board from a amd xp board I purchased 4 yrs ago. I'm very pleased with it, as I were looking for a more up to date board that supported IDE hard drives. I wanted to keep the hard drives from my old board.I still have plenty of room...

This board has IDE and sata connectors, just the type of board I were looking for.Can support all intel cpu's up to core2 due with 1066 mhz fsb. Supports oc
