Great little motherboard

Pros:Cheap motherboard with all the bells and whistles.

Cons:Getting a rebate is like pulling a teeth out.

The Bottom Line: If you need cheap little motherboard, this is good.


I purchased this motherboard from the Tigerdirect.ca. They had a special with the Celeron chip, and they were real cheap.

The motherboard has built in sound, LAN, LPT1, Video, USB 2.0, Serial port, and mouse and keyboard input. The Windows XP with Service Pack 2 did not recognize most of the devices, but the accompanying CD had all the necessary drivers. You can also download the driver from their website.

You have two slots for DDR DIMM memory. More memory slots would be nice, but the two slot memory seems to be the norm these days.

The motherboard comes with both SATA and IDE interface for attaching hard drive. The motherboard comes with IDE cable, but I do not recall seeing the SATA cable. Hopefully, the cable will come with the hard drive. Otherwise, you need to take a trip to the computer store for the SATA cables. I attached a IDE hard drive. When the computer booted, the BIOS seemlingly froze under the detecting IDE section. I had to wait for the bios to time out (maybe a minute?), and initiate a bios screen (Del key) and disable the SATA Drive. After that, the drive worked like a charm.

Getting a rebate is sooooooo tricky. You have to go online and print a rebate form. They require a "copy of original serial number", in addition to the usual invoice and UPC code. How you can get this copy of original serial number, I don't know, and the support at OnRebate.com didn't seem to understand what I was saying. I ended up taking a photo of the motherboard showing the serial number and attached it to the rebate form. We'll see if they honour that.
