First thing, I needed a new PC as my laptop was very slow, and basically just falling apart! So I decided to build a new pc, so I went onto ebay, and started looking for a motherboard and processor bundle! I came across this motherboard with a Sempron 2800+ CPU (processor) and 256mb of ram. I snatched up this bargain for around £50 including delivery!
It's a very small motherboard (9.6inch X 7.8inch, 24.4cm X 19.8cm) which is ideal for smaller computer cases. The motherboard includes several of inputs and outputs on its back panel stated below.
By using the header for the USB2 on the motherboard I was able to connect the USB ports on my computer case to the motherboard giving me an extra two USB ports, totally six USB ports (which is more than enough for anybody)CPU - This motherboard supports socket 462 processors, AMD Sempron, Athlon, Athlon XP, Duron with FSB speeds of 400/333/266/200 MhzAC97 CODEC 5.1 channel
As stated above the motherboard allows the user to get the most out of there processor by overclocking it safely using Hybrid booster. Also includes reasonable onboard graphics which was a big help for me as I was able to use the motherboard without having to buy a graphics card. Has 5.1 channel audio which has awesome sound quality, so there is no need to buy an additional sound card. Four USB ports, which is a big help if you want to connect multiple things at one time e.g. printer, camera, MP3 player and USB mouse.
Before purchasing this motherboard bundle off ebay, I checked ciao to see what other people have thought of this motherboard and from the reviews by the sounds of it people have only had problems, but I can gladly say I have had no problems with this motherboard since I have had it (since around Jan 07)
