The ASRock G41C-VS is a mid-grade motherboard for use with socket 775 Intel processors. The G41C model features an integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 chipset (1759MB Shared VRAM) which provides native Pixel Shader 4.0 and DirectX 10 support.

The ASRock G41C-VS motherboard is part of ASRock's Socket 775 motherboard series; and serves as a slight upgrade from the G31M-GS R2.0 model. The G41C model features the Intel G41 North-bridge chipset and Intel ICH7 South-bridge chipset. The G41C motherboard supports a unique DDR2 (800MHz) and DDR3 (1066MHz) memory function which allows users to connect both types of memory. Additional options include a Gigabit (10/100/100) LAN, 1 PCI-E x16 expansion slot, 2 on-board SATA 3.0GB/s connectors, full 5.1 channel HD audio (Realtek ALC662 Audio Codec), and unique ASROCK BIOS Software. The G41C model also features a larger 8MB AMI Legal BIOS whereas the lower end G31M model only features a 4MB BIOS.
