The socket775 Intel G43 chipset doesn’t get a lot of coverage, mostly because of the poor graphical performance associated with the Intel GMA X4500.  The ASRock G43Twins-FullHD is available for under $80, a big difference in price from X48 based boards, which may garner the attention of anyone with a C2D or C2Q sitting in a box somewhere.  A quartet of DIMM slots that can handle either a pair of DDR2 or a pair of DDR3 @ 1066 or 800 and a single PCIe 2.0 16x slot may seem limiting, but on a budget build you aren’t going for a pair of HD5970s and DDR2 can only manage dual channel, so really it sits in a nice niche.  Check out the full review at Extreme Overclocking.

“These days, with the economy the way it is, budget computers are getting more and more popular. The tradeoff between features and price is always a tough decision. ASRock’s newest mATX motherboard is hoping to gain some of that market. The ASRock G43Twins-FullHD is a small, but feature packed LGA775 motherboard based on the Intel G43 chipset.”
