    Well I have the MSI K8N Neo V on a VIA K8M800 chip set....all i can say that its a normal low end mobo...

    Its has a 754 Socket
    Single channel memory controller (MAX 2 GB)
    2 SATA
    2 IDE
    1 AGP 8 X
    5 PCI
    and a VIA VT8237 southbridge

    ITS a average performer

    Not bat not so good.
    Has better graphics than 865.
    Will be able to play all the games that can be played on 915 but doesn't supports hardware DirectX9

    Yes, go for the 939 based mobos now...they support higher bandwidths...
    Higher memory...dual channel memory...128 Bit mem controller....
