Intel® Quad-core Processor Ready

This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Quad-core processors in LGA775 package. It also can support Intel® next generation 45nm Multi-Core CPU. It´s excellent for multi-tasking, multi-media and enthusiastic gamers with 1600(O.C)/ 1333 / 1066/800 MHz FSB. Intel® Quad-core is one of the most powerful CPU in the world.

Intel® Core™2 Processor Ready

This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Core™2 processors in LGA775 package. With new Intel® Core™ microarchitecture technology and 1066 MHz FSB, Intel® Core™2 processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPU in the world.

Intel® G31 Chipset

The Intel® G31 Express Chipset boosts your gaming and multimedia experience with the integrated graphics engine Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3100. It supports 1333MHz FSB (front-side-bus), and delivers breakthrough advances in 3D and 2D graphics; and video capabilities. This integrated chipset is able to meet the changing display requirements of visually rich applications and features the Intel® Clear Video Technology - which trailblazes new standards in high-definition video, crisp imaging, and accurate color control.

Dual-Channel DDR2 1066

To attain top performance, ASUS engineers have successfully unleashed the true potential of DDR2 memory. While CPU is running under FSB1066/1333, ASUS´s exclusive technology offers a choice of DDR2 1066(O.C*) - providing great performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.

PCI Express Architecture

PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 and x4 also outperforms PCI interface with its exceptional high bandwidth. The high speed PCI Express interface creates new usages on desktop PCs e.g., Gigabit LAN, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.

SATA 3Gb/s

Pros: works well with iatkos and ideneb distros ASUS build quality Cons: a bit expensive for a basic board with basic features Other Thoughts: if you have all the parts for a hackintosh and you only need a compatible motherboard this one is for you. drivers are easy to find and very stable.

Pros: Great inexpensive motherboard - drives in Windows Vista and Windows 7 load automatically! Cons: Not built for overclocking in mind Other Thoughts: Some people who have no idea what there doing should learn/research BEFORE they think the can build a computer! User error is way too common place for these OEM type of computer items and most negative reviews on newegg are from I_Diot s that have no idea what they are doing. Look for the smart informative reviews from people who know what t ... hey are doing and explain it in such a way as to indicate their knowledge base, then again, if you have no idea what your doing you will have no idea what they are talking about! So catch 22... Good luck - ASUS is always the best - they have great (well okay - but vastly better than others...) tech support and customer service! More >
