Not bad boards, have used a couple of these in previous system builds of late. One has failed and had to be replaced due to random freezing. Also a good price as Novatech, my local supplier, are selling for £39. Now superseeded by the G41 but not that much difference in spec.

However if it where for my own build i would pay a tenner extra and go for an Asus P5 as they are so much better imo.

Saying that good deal so hot ;-)

Great price for a budget build.

I've been using this board for a year or so running Windows Server - works great and the gigabit ethernet paired with a large hard drive and an Intel E6300 cpu makes for a fast low powered server.

This is an ideal board to undervolt and use in a high usage, low performance computer because of the simplicity of the design.
Fine for browsing, emailing and light productivity, it's not much use for gaming or HTPC unless you invest in an additional graphics card (and I'd buy a different motherboard if you were planning on this.)

If you need the low-ish power of an Atom machine but a bit more performance in terms of CPU, this is an ideal board to marry up with a low-end to mid-range Core 2 processor.

its cheap because it offers no upgrade path. i3 i5 i7 is where the intel party is now.

Not everyone wants to upgrade, this board is ideal for building a cheap system. I have wasted a considerable amount of money in the past buying the most expensive motherboards trying to future proof, now I buy a board that will do what I want at the time of purchase, the money that I save can then be used to buy the next board when I next upgrade.

ordered one to pair with a E4600 that has been sitting gathering dust.

Only 4 left in stock just after I ordered.

Just bought myself one

Can someone tell me what RAM is compatible with this?

Budget build would be:-
G31/G41 (Intel) or 740G/780G (AMD) motherboard ~ £40-45
Dual Core processor: E5200 (Intel) or Athlon X2 5000 (AMD) ~£40-45
2GB Memory (DDR2 or DDR 3 depending on motherboard) ~£40
Case : ~£25
Named PSU: ~£30
Optical Drive: £20
HDD: ~£34-80 (depending on size)
OS: dependant .

Personally, for a light-use general purpose machine, I'd check ebay,.I've seen refurbished Intel Core 2 Duo machines on there for around £140.

The E5300 is favoured by overclockers. That baby can reach 3GHz with the stock intel fan.

Of course, thats only for those with experience.
#16

#17
Although Amazon are currently out of stock, you can still order at this price as they are expecting more stock

A friend just fried his motherboard so he's asked me to pick him one up, this'll do nicely :) All gone now (I got the last one) :D
