      Disadvantages

      The discontinued processor make this a bad choose if you like to upgrade a lot

      I got this About two years ago when i first started to built this computer i'm currently on.
      lets have a look at what this motherboard has to offer:

      Processor
      This motherboard takes a Intel 775 dual core or a quad core processor, which is the cheap processor to buy on a budget but this motherboard can not a I3,I5,I7 processor as they stopped making 775 socket processors now but you can still get them at any online computer shop and there a lot cheap then the new once.

      Ram
      This can hold a max of 16GB of ram but you an only have 4GB of Ram if you have a 32-bit operating systems but if your running a 64-bit OS then you can have the full 16GB of Ram.

      Graphics Card
      This motherboard and 2x PCI x16 slots which you can have 2 graphics cards working together to bring you more graphic power for games, media and to have more displays.
      if you wanted 2 graphics cards you would need to change the card in the middle of the graphic slots.
      You get a free bridge from Asrock as you need this to SLI or Crossfire the Graphics cards.

      PCI slots
      There is only two PCI slots on this motherboard as you have an extra graphics card slot.
      so be careful which you choose as you only have 2 of them.

      Interface
      You get 6 USB 2.0 port on this motherboard with one fire wire port as well,
      you also get an 7 pin external Serial ATA so you can connect your external harddriver too.
      For the old school mouse and keyboard there is PS/2 Connections as well, Now this motherboard has 7.1 sound-round sound built into this which would make this a amazing home cinema PC

      Overall
      Now that the 775 socket is now discontinued you would only get one for the price and to make a budget Gaming PC but you are going to need to get an other motherboard in about 2 year or sooner as you can only put a quad core processor, As the Gaming spec go's up you would need to get both a new processor and motherboard which would be costly.
