Sods law. Bought this just before the Today Only section changed. It was there for £75 yesterday!
Doesn't have all the bells and whistles (i.e. no video output), but a good deal for people after a cheap Z68 board with the ability to over-clock and don't mind adding their own GPU, no?

Find it in the Super Savers section at the top. Free delivery for AV Forum members.

Why does it have parallel and serial ports?

Cutting costs I guess. Seems a bit silly though to be honest, another 2-4 USB ports wouldn't have gone a miss...

only 4 usb ports?
my R2E has like 10 lol

For printers, modems and data acquisition probes, for instance.

Shame this must have been recetly released, I upgraded a couple of weeks ago and didn't see the board, so I ended up with the MSI P67 boards, great boards, only problem is lack of E-Sata and the annoying beeping noise it makes everytime I boot, which turned out to be a beep for every USB device connected, after testing with no USB devices connected was satisfied...pretty stupid if you ask me, I wonder how many people returned the Motherboard thinking there is something wrong and turns out it's devices connected?

This looks like their entry level board for Business PC's can't see any other reason for a Parallel and Seriel port in this day and age, but Still good price for a P68 board if you want to build a powerful PC with onchip graphics, just a shame wasn't avaiable few weeks ago when I was looking for one.

@Harryisme

That'll learn you to go for feature bloat. A beep per USB device! Dire.

I'd love to know how the Z68 emulates SSD performance without sprinkling liberal amounts of RAM chips everywhere to cache the OS. But I ain't buying it.

sort of tempting but cant spend any more on my pc for another 8 months or so. hopefully the higher spec boards will have dropped down in price.

hot deal though
