Final Thoughts

 

ASUS is one of the biggest names in motherboard history. From its humble beginnings of stable, well trusted platforms, to being the head of the overclocking community in my opinion, beating out ABIT, ASUS has managed to keep stability, quality and feature packed boards in line with great overclocking options.

 

The ASUS P5WD2 motherboard continues on from the P5AD2-E motherboard, designed using the same principals, with a few extra options to add spice to the end-users world.

 

Overall the amount of features are well balanced with support for Crossfire coming and possibly even SLI. The ASUS P5WD2 motherboard is definitely one to get your hands on from a variety of different angles.

 

- Pros

 

Feature Packed

 

Supports all LGA775 CPU's (Pentium-D and Pentium XE included)

- Latest Pricing

 

ASUS P5WD2 Premium Motherboard

 

The ASUS P5WD2 motherboard is for people who want a premium class motherboard with stacks of options and overclockability and is not for people who want a cheap and basic motherboard.
