Why is it that ONLY Asrock came up with the idea of a board that takes AM3 and AM2 processors and at the same time will take DDR3 Memory or DDR2 Memory. It is what every computer guru has been waiting for. I and many others will be needing this board for those older upgrades when the customers AM2 board goes and the CPU and Ram are still good and the customer is not ready to upgrade to a AM3 CPU and DDR3 ram or at this time they can not afford it.
I have not tested this board yet, but I feel I was very lucky to find it. Asrock brand name is not the 1st board I would have picked but if it will do what the Specs say I'm looking forward to this board and for more than one repair job. First thing even before installing is to test board and make sure everything is working correctly.
If you run a small business like I do then this board is a lifesaver, in this economy we need this board for the customer that just does not have the money for all the other upgrades to the AM3, DDR3 systems yet!

Accepts any AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ CPU up to 95W, and DDR2 or DDR3. This allows a cheap method of reusing the older AM2 and DDR2 that many people have lying around from previous upgrades.
I managed to dust off a "pre-loved" AM2 6000+ and replace a very problematic OEM PC by using this board and the internals from the OEM PC. Total investment, the cost of this board.
NVidia GeForce 7025 graphics on a board that can use the latest 6-8 core AM3+ CPU's is like having a Ferrari with an "etch-a-sketch" in place of the sat-nav screen.....
It's better than no graphics at all, but if you're intending to do anything beyond basic desktop graphic needs, you're going to need an add-in video card. Fortunately, there is a PCI-E 16X slot for this purpose.
AM2/AM2+ boards are getting hard to locate. This was one of the few that I found to still be available, and was the least expensive as well. If you have older AM2/AM2+ parts laying around, this board makes for a rather affordable way to use them.
