Easy BIOS flashing, Very tweak friendly. Run this board with a 2600+ Barton and laugh with joy as you OC the rig. Takes a beating, very durable in my experience. Withstanding multiple PSU deaths. Great quality on-board sound with 5.1 out. Works with all hardware I have ever attached to it.
The ram drops in speed as you fill the dimm slots with 1GB's pc3200 to pc2700, The jumpers are not toggles making it a bit difficult for some to access the over clocking features. Plain style, looks like something that wants to hide in a beige box.
Greatest mother board for the value, with the low cost of the components for this dated motherboard you can build one serious rig for very little bread!
A7V8X-X Asus BIOS 1014
Amd 2600+ Barton @ 2.07 GHz [11.5 * 180/36]
Kingston 1GB DDR 400
ATI AIW Radeon 9800 pro 128MB AGP
80GB Matrox HD
300 Watt PSU
Fast enough for many great 3D games.
