    it depends on your intentions. If you are any kind of an enthusiast then it's not a mobo you want to have...but if you're just going to use it in a typical desktop setting then it should be fine

    It'll be used for my #2 best gaming system. I'm not real interested in fancy stuff for this one, and doubt I'll need to overclock anything right now, I just want plenty of speed to play all current 3D games at 1024x768 with ease. I'll be sticking in a p4 2.4 ghz cpu, ATI Radeon 9800 pro or an ATI radeon 9500 pro for video, 160 gb maxtor harddrive (8 meg buffer), 512 mb 2700 333mhz ram, and I'll be running Windows XP Pro on it. I'm hoping it's enough to do the job but I've never used this type of motherboard chipset before so I'm going out on a limb here.

    sounds like you are putting some good hardware together...you really ought to look into a beter mobo to support it all

    biostar makes low quality OEM boards and I'm afraid you will be sorely disapointed with it

    Why do you think I'll be disappointed? Have you had previous experience with this type of board?

    The only reason I'm using that stuff in it is becuase I have it onhand and I just want a mobo to get the job done. I figure if I don't like the board I'm only out $57, but I hope it suffices, I'm sure it'll beat the complete and total junk that companies like Sony, HP, and Dell are dumping into their mid to high-end systems nowdays.

    How is it going to hold everything back? It has everything I need. 8X AGP, supports my processor and RAM plus plenty of room to grow. What else is needed?

    Thats what alot of people think when theyre gettin an ECS, PCChips, or BIostar. BUt when in reality, you can get much better, for not much more money
