Get a great look at the P5RD1-VM motherboard while you can, because once it's in your system you'll wonder how this crucial component can work so fast. It provides outstanding integrated graphics performance, PCI-Express VGA when you're ready for an upgrade, 1066 FSB, and it even takes in a Pentium Processor Extreme Edition CPU. Intel's Pentium 4 is one of the fastest processors on the market, and since it's paired with the RADEON X300 graphics processing unit which supports DirectX 9 only the finest quality of 3D and 2D images and video will be produced. With next generation technology such as PCI Express and Serial ATA being used, awesome 3D gaming and a fast connection are guaranteed.

Asus P5RD1-VM Motherboard Features
Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU This motherboard supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 1066/800MHz FSB, MB L2 cache, Hyper-Threading Technology and core speeds up to 3.6GHz and beyond, Intel's LGA775 Pentium 4 is one of the fastest desktop processors to date.
ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Northbridge The ATI RADEON® XPRESS 200 Northbridge integrates the Radeon® X300 graphics processing unit (GPU) supporting DirectX 9 for enhanced 3D, 2D, and video capabilities.
PCI Express Architecture PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI interface. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming.
Serial ATA RAID Serial ATA is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance for today and tomorrow. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA, while providing 100% software compatibility. The onboard ULI® M1573 southbridge allows RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, JBOD configuration for four SATA connectors.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS2 The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support CD. Users can reboot their system through the support CD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process. ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.
