ATX i845G based motherboard that is highly integrated, yet is still flexible
should you need to upgrade certain parts of your computer.
It's nice to see

motherboard has everything you would expect, onboard 5.1 audio, onboard LAN, USB
2.0 and onboard video.
it very interesting that Iwill even included an internal USB 2.0 port! The
internal USB port makes it possible to connect to USB2.0 based devices without
tieing up an IDE port for example.
a lot of jumpers all over the board from under the AGP to near the PS/2 ports,

based on the i845G we already know the performance of the board good, but the
mP4G would often perform near the top of all the motherboards. Not a bad feat
for a microATX motherboard.
Unfortunately, we're not really sure how much the
motherboard will retail for, it'll probably be a little more expensive then the
MSI solutions since Iwill is always a bit pricey. Still it's a great
