MSI G41M-P28


$62.00 Released December, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Good value for the money, you get all the features you'll need. Accepts components with very little configuration required, usually plug-and-play. Affordable price point.

The Cons:Few expansion slots. Maximum 2 memory DIMMs. Poor from a future-proofing perspective.

The MSI G41M-P28 is a low-cost motherboard with on-board support for video and audio in a Micro-ATX form factor. This is similar to the MSI G41M-P26, but has support for faster 10/100/1000 Ethernet and a 6-in-1 audio jack to enable the use of microphones and a complete 7.1 surround sound audio system.
