Default Is this mobo any good?

Hi. I just wanted to check here to see if this motherboard is any good before buying it. It seems like a good deal at only $70, for what it is, but I just want to make sure there's nothing wrong with it (there must be some reason it's so cheap.) Thanks

No lol. This is the worst build ever...ASRock is crappy. I'd get a nice ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe

Ok... two things:
1) I am not wasting money on an SLi-ready motherboard.
2) Why is that motherboard crappy? Please be more specific.

Thechipset, build and the way it is being built is very weak. This boardcan fry when you least expect it...and ULI...it's like ALI and ALI is awful for games.

You don need an SLI board? Ok then...How about an ASUS A8V

I don't need SLi, but I do need a PCI-e slot. What is best-value motherboard I can get that has a PCI-e slot?

Hmm... I see 4 RAM slots on that one, yet the specs say it can only take 2GB - does it not support 1GB sticks?

That one isn't bad. The ULi chipset is pretty good. It can support SATAII and various things. ASRock doesn't suck. They're just not widely known.

What about this one? It's less expensive than that ASUS one you showed me and it even has SLi
