ASUS P5GD2-Premium Motherboard

Post by Apoptosis » Thu Feb 17, 2005 8:41 am

As we have seen thoughout this article, the ASUS P5GD2 Premium Wireless Edition has its Pros and very few Cons. The major benefit here is the feature-rich, cadalac series qualities integrated on this motherboard. Features like Triple RAID, support for 12 SATA devices, 8-channel audio, onboard WiFi-g, and Dual Gigabit LAN just are not part of your everyday motherboard. All of these features are very welcome to the market and I'm sure a few of you out there will use this board the way its meant to be run with everything enabled.

The review was good, however the pictures for the test results could have been a wee bit smaller.

yeah I agree with ya on that one.. since it was only two items being benchmarked and the charts were kept full size they are a tad large ;)

I need this board badly. If I got one mobo for every three WB's I'd be in mobo heaven (which is where my Asus P4C800Edlx just went recently hehe).

Oh wait I'm not eligible...Doh

:shock:

Heh, an LGA board?
I'm up to expanding my computer count in the house, an lga board would give me a nice excuse to purchase the parts for another :P

ASUS P5GD2

Post by ianthompson » Wed Feb 23, 2005 6:00 am

Me too on the ASUS P5GD2-Premium Motherboard !!

Wish I had gone with LGA before - I'm having nothing but overtemperature problems on the 478 (the board, not the Prescott).

At least I'll be able to xfer the SATA drives across!
