MSI makes some quality products and the ATI 6670 video card I chose for my sons PC is just as solid as this mobo. Not a lot of frills here, but just enough to get by with a solid budget build that has some room for improvement later. Starting out with a Pentium G620 and will later upgrade him to an i5 when needed!
if no graphics drivers are installed, the basic MS driver will show (at basic resolution) on the vga, but ONLY if there is also something plugged into the dvi port. otherwise it would do nothing.
if any drivers from any source (intel, MSI, or windows update) are installed it will half way boot, showing stuff on both the dvi and vga at different points but it always freezes and dies shortly after the login screen (but even before this point it looks very unstable the whole boot process.
but with the PCIe graphics card the board shows no signs of problems and hasn't for almost 3 years.
I also found the power management strange, in order for a usb mouse to be able to wake it from sleep, I had to move a jumper on the board that keeps the usb ports powered at all times (even with shut down) otherwise it would cut power to the mouse and keyboard during sleep. Then I had to go to the bios setting and set the wake up events to bios controlled rather than OS controlled because it still wouldn't wake.
AND WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT enable windows 8 mode. It screws everything up, and does weird stuff when it tries to boot, the only way to get it back it to reset the bios to defaults.Read more ›
This board also has pin headers for com/serial & parallel (old legacy) ports, but does not have the physical jacks. I still have things needing both types of ports, and spare parts to create these jacks for old scanners, printers, etc. New PCs will not even have these legacy options. MSI has made a well designed motherboard which can still accept the old gizmos (if needed) and yet run state of the art processors. 5 Stars!
This was a great starting point for my own cheap gaming rig build. Everything is pretty solid feeling on this board, capacitors are solid and the board stays pretty cool. would reccomend thiis to anyone for a low cost pc build for anything.
Rather than completely discard years of work and installed applications and programs on an XP Hard Drive, by overwriting the drive or migrating, it is possible to keep that work as-is and running perfectly in a dual-booted system.
In summary: extend that legacy XP hard drive for another 5 years, while gradually migrating files to the new system. Access-times, latency, and performance were significantly improved over the previous motherboard and legacy Intel CPU, by increased RAM and CPU speed on the new MSI H61M-P31/W8.
