MSi P41-C31


$75.00 Released February, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Value - competitively priced for a full ATX motherboard. Includes many MSI exclusive utilities in the box.

The Cons:Limited to 4GB of memory. Based on the aging LGA775 CPU socket. Lots of PCI and PCI-e 1x slots - most users won't need them.

The MSi P41-C31 is a low-cost motherboard built in an ATX form factor. This board has integrated video, audio and network support, but the limited amount of memory and small number of expansion slots make it a poor choice for enthusiasts.
