Default Motherboard - Good? Bad?

I bought it already so i guess there isnt too much point in asking, but im on a budget, and this one sounded good for the money to me.

Yeah. I bought the Mobo, and they gave me a form to go get the processor from another part of the store.

Depends on what your using your computer for. Personally, i think it was a bad idea. Sorry to be so blunt, but thats just what i thought. But again, just depends what its used for.

The spec seems fine to me?! If anything the total amount of RAM it will handle is only half of most the boards today, but I don't know anyone who has gone over 1.5GB, so that's not really a problem!

Everything else is fine. IMO it is a good board!

I think its a decent purchase, it is only 533 fsb, but for your purposes it may be fine. And it has support for more ram and a better cpu so you can upgrade later if you want. Like Codeine said its up to what you wanna do with it.
