The motherboard seems very sturdy as well. Now on to the negative point of this board. Really handy as it supports my current p4 prescott HT and allows upgrade potential. Another possible negative point could be the limitation of just one PCI. The motherboard itself seems very solid as well. It makes a change from either having to purchase an archaic board so you have XP support or a modern board like this one, that only supports Vista. Temporarily I am using this board in a DVR system, until it replaces the motherboard in a testing system after that.

To start off, il just outlay some brief specifications with opinions provided. It makes a change from either having to purchase an archaic board so you have P4m900 support or a modern board like this one, that only supports Vista.
It would have meant a micro system could be run with two HDD’s and an optical drive. This should be noted before purchase that they cannot be interchanged, so DDR memory cannot be inserted in to a DDR2 slot and vice versa.
For example, upon installing the same CPU that p4m00 been used in a previous gigabyte board, i noticed the CPU p44m900 on the motherboard actually clipped the CPU down, instead of having an eerie feeling of a bent clasp like on other boards.
In the past with all other motherboards I have used, the DVR PCI card driver installation has caused havoc with motherboard drivers, however with this board, I didn’t suffer the same instability while installing drivers as I have in the past.
Although this is an issue with the PCI card itself, how this motherboard handles troublesome hardware is very impressive. The motherboard itself seems very solid as well.

With the graphics being onboard and no onboard memory you’re purely dependant on part of your ram being allocated for video memory. It might seem like an obvious point, but finding a reliable board that I could use indefinitely on a p4 HT and then a dual core in the future was challenging.

T dual core 1. I noticed quite a few views so hopefully it may have helped someone after a budget board.

The time now is I would have liked an additional SATA port and wouldn’t have minded p49m00 extra couple of pounds expense. Results 1 to 4 of 4 Thread: Really handy as it supports my current p4 prescott HT and allows upgrade potential.

Full driver discs include drivers for XP and Vista. Temporarily I am using this board in a DVR system, until it replaces the motherboard in a testing system after that.
This isn’t really an issue, except if you wanted to play any games from this century and afterthen a PCI GPU would be required. Conclusion If you’re looking for a micro ATX board that offers flexibility between all OS’s win2k upwardsolder hardware and newer hardware then this MSI board is a solid and reliable choice.

Results 1 to 4 p49m00 4. As with any hardware, improvements could be made, but a solid base for most is essential, that is where this board delivers.
However the two DIMM’s onboard may be a bit misleading to some for the following reasons.

Upon screwing down the heatsink there was a more comforting re-assurance than with some others boards.
