EVGA P55 Micro


$180.00 Released September, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very small form factor fits easily in most cases without problems. Fairly inexpensive for this form factor and spec base. Compatible with a range of higher-end parts, can produce high-powered builds in small cases with this motherboard.

The Cons:No BIOS updates and included BIOS is very basic and hard to navigate compared to most other boards. Too small to fit SLi video cards. BIOS does not include any overclocking options.
