About the board

I purchased this motherboard from Aria 3 weeks weeks ago, but I'm now building an Intel Core 2 Duo system so I no longer need this Asus board. It's had very little use and is offered in mint condition. Inside the box you'll find all the accessories, brackets, cables, the user manual, and an installation CD . There's a three year warranty available when you register with Asus, I have not registered the board yet so the winning bidder will also get the Asus warranty. This board is loaded with Overclocking options, there's an excellent 12 page review on the Asus A8R-MVP over at Anandtech where they describe the performance of this motherboard as spectacular.
