Nice low budget motherboard
4 Star Review   By Jim on Mwave.com - Jul 31, 2007   

Strengths: Supports 2 IDE channels if you haven't upgraded to SATA. Also has SATA 1.5, built in sound and video.

Weakness: Only 2 PCI slots, unable to OC Processor. Requires minimum WinXP Service Pack 2, don't attempt to install with prior OS. No Firewire.

Documentation was adequate, all connections were straight forward. The ASUS Web site indicates "The P5VD2-MX SE offers the CPU Lock Free feature, which allows you to adjust CPU multiplier to 14x". I can find no information anywhere about it for this board. It would only give the Blue Screen of Death when trying to boot with WinXP Pro Service Pack 0. Had to use Nlite to add SP2 and make a bootable SP2 CD. Sound quality and video quality can easily be beat (but that would require filling up the PCI Slots). Board is a good low budget board, have had for over 3 weeks without anything unexpected.
