MSI RS480 M2

Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Great onboard graphics PCI-E x16,Firewire,Upto 4GB RAM Supports Cool n Quiet Flashable BIOS

Cons:No overclocking Integrated graphics uses RAM No SATA2,Gigabit,PCI-E1x Old sound chipset(AC97)

The reason I chose this MoBo was that, at the time i bought it, RS480 provided the best onboard graphics solution available.
Till date, it has never disappointed me. This one boasts of features like

Socket 939 Processor
PCI-E x16 slot
3 PCI slots
Integrated Radeon Xpress200 graphics ( Max 128 MB, shared )
4 DIMM slots (upto 4 GB DDR 400 MHz)
Supports Dual-Channel mode
Onboard RAID 0 or 1
Onboard AC97 6 channel audio
2 IDE channels
4 SATA ports
8 USB 2.0 ports
1 Firewire port
10/100 Mbps ethernet integrated
SPDIF connector
S-video out
Composite video out
1 Serial port

This is a good buy for the not so avid gamer who wanna try new games and for the non - overclocker .. Please note that this Mobo doesnt support Windows 89.
