Pros All the essential ports (USB, SATA, Audio, etc...) Great Price
Cons Only one PATA connector for old (peripherals)
Summary This is a great MB if especially if you're building an affordable machine. Despite what the brief review says, this does have an integrated ethernet port. Integrated video not bad at all. A great motherboard as a family machine. Only other comment is to make sure you use SATA hard drives when running Vista. The performance is like night and day.
Pros Great MB for the money with all the Extras included
Cons None for the little money this MB cost
Summary The cnet review says it has no on board ethernet...it does.
This is an AM2 socket board but the review suggests using a socket-A processor for some mixed-up,mistaken reason.
This board is a Great low end board. It's Manual is full of pictures but contains very little data or specs. You get what you pay for.
