For being an econo board for me, it packed a punch, everything you could hope for was included with it, very functional, plenty of slots, ability to work accross many bridges etc...
Wasnt free. But close. They could have charged alot more.
I love it, been running it for years now, for my business, and they have worked flawlesly.
The only thing wrong with it is user error, they are not dummy proof, if you hook it up right, run the right O.S. you will not have any issues with it.
I am still surprized by how well it has worked compared to my other boards ASUS, In the last two years I have had three ASUS fry on me.... Dont get me wrong I love ASUS, but I have had problems with them, and the like especially consitering the price I paid, as I bought them at frys electronics as board/cpu combos.
Not one crash, not one failer, nothing! works great with soundblaster live and pro. I even at first ran the built in sound, and vid, it worked great too. upgrading hasnt been an issue as well.
I currently have ASUS Nvidia, and ATI in them for graphics, no problems.
Various hard drives, still no problems.
I bought 12 of them, price was right, and I needed to replace the computers at my business overnight, as my business was broken into and the computers stolen.
For the bucks you pay, you cant go wrong with this board, just hook it up right.
