Asus M4A77T Motherboard
I have to admit that I am not one who knows all the ins and outs of computer hardware, though I am sure that I am not alone. For this reason, I thought I would write a review on this motherboard in basic terms so that others like me can understand a little more. It is great when people know all the workings of a device like this, though sometimes I find it a little confusing. What I want to know is just how good it is without having to have a computer dictionary by the side of me! I apologize if my review is too simple!
The motherboard is certified for Windows Vista, which is what is on my computer at the moment and is compatible with the following processors;
Sempron, Phenom II X3, Athlon II X2, Phenom II X2, Athlon II X4, Athlon II X3, Phenom II X4
I have no idea of how to put a computer together on the inside, though I watched as a friend inserted into the system which looked relatively simple. It came with instructions for fitting the motherboard, though these instructions do not tell you how to take everything apart, and more importantly, it doesn't tell you how to put it all back together again!
It is recommended that this motherboard is used in newer computers opposed to older computers. I have a newer computer and it works perfectly fine for what I need it to do. Another friend has the same motherboard, bought around the same time as me, and has an older computer and finds that there are a number of small problems with it.
The motherboard supports 16GB of memory and has four DIMM slots for RAM. With the memory in mind, I have never run out of memory and I play a number of games on the PC and the internet and as far as I can tell, the motherboard works perfectly fine with memory to spare.
The audio is an 8-channel HD audio and I am able to get some great sound from the computer with this motherboard inserted.
I have had this motherboard in my computer for about 10 months now and I have had no real problems. The computer has crashed a couple of times, though I do not think it is anything to do with the motherboards performance.
Summary: A great buy
