Pros

Hybrid CrossFire allows you to run 4 displays from one discrete GPU and the onboard graphics.

2 agree

Integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics and microATX form factor make this a good choice for HTPC builds.

1 agrees

Good stock cooling--southbridge and northbridge heatsinks keep everything running cool and stable.

1 agrees

Very neat, organized layout--lots of room for a larger GPU.

1 agrees

Extensive built-in vied out--HDMI, DVI and VGA.

Cons

Anything newer than an ATI Radeon 4750 will be too powerful for the Hybrid CrossFire to even make a difference.

1 agrees

BIOS isn't as clear-cut and well laid out as most ASUS boards--things are often unintuitively named (OC settings under "JumperFree Configuration").

1 agrees

Express Gate instant-on OS needs to be installed on to a hard drive, somewhat defeating its purpose.
