Just Build a new Computer based on Asus P5ql Pro Board.

It is a very nice Board with many featurers but it is easy to see that the EIDE era is on its way out now everything is Sata.

I did ad a PCI  EIDE Controller Card so i could use my Hard drives i allready had laying around,when you do that make sure to go into Bios and deactivate the onboard EIDE Controller if you dont Computer will not boot.

I also had to update the Xpress Gate feature Computer would not boot with it Activated in Bios but worked fine after update.

I did have several good Nvidia Graphics Cards but i could not use them in this board cause it was not pci xpress +16.

I dont have any other issues with this board Installed Linux and Win XP pro on it with no problem.

Board support up to 16 gig Ram on a 64 bit system that should be enough for most people.
