ASUS P7P55D PRO


$170.00 Released September, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Huge number of USB 2.0 ports--14 as opposed to the average 10-12. Fantastic warranty--3 years parts and labour. Price drops since its release (down to about $140) make it a very affordable board for enthusiasts on a budget.

The Cons:3-way SLI or CrossFireX only run at x8/x8/x4. The LED error light for the PCI-E x16 lanes gets covered up with a larger graphics card installed, making it pretty much useless.

The ASUS P7P55D PRO is a mid-level ATX motherboard designed for the LGA 1156 socket, meaning the Intel Core i7 and i5 processors are compatible. Features on this board include four DD3 memory slots, capable of supporting RAM up to speeds of 2200 (overclocked).
