Advantages: cheap, reliable, packed with features
Disadvantages: booting problems
Let's get to the bottom line first - buy this without hesitation if you want a decent motherboard at a top price. I upgraded not so long ago and bought this board, and although it wasn't my first option, I havn't regretted it since.
It supports DDR 400 up to a maximum of 1.5gb and a CPU speed of up up to 2.4Ghz. With plenty of features, a great price and reliability, it's almost faultless. ALMOST. All because of one niggling fault.
The main problem, and the only problem, i've had with this board is its refusal to boot up my mouse and keyboard. Amazingly, the instuction booklet did help. It directed me straight to Asus' website where i downloaded a new bios for it. After flashing it with the new bios I haven't had any more problems.
What it comes down to is, how big of a problem this is to you. Personally, I recommend this card just because of what it can handle and equally as importantly - the price. Cheap, packed with features and CHEAP. A great budget range motherboard thats worth buying.
