Anyone know anything about this motherboard?

The Intel 865PERLL?

My friend is looking to build a computer and this is the board he's picked out. It looks pretty solid from the specs that I've seen online, but I couldn't find any reviews or anything.

Apparently Fry's is offering this MOBO and a P4 2.6 GhZ chip for about $250.

The motherboard in your post is a DFI, not an Intel. The "Intel 865PE" indicates the chipset used on the board, not the brand name. Here is the manufacturers website on the board, if it is the correct one do a search for reviews on "DFI PS83-BL"

Here's a good comparison between the PS83-BL and similar boards.

If your friend's planning at OCing his 2.6C at all, stay away from the DFI mobo. The Asus P4P800 Deluxe and Abit AI7 are both good mobos, but the Asus cost more. Abit AI7 is around $99, P4 2.6C retail around $170. Check zipzoomfly and newegg. Free shipping (fedex 2 day) and no tax for out of Cali customer.

Ok, I know nothing of the board. I was only posting directly the links and info he gave me. I didn't do any independent research. He's not OC the chip, so that's not a gib deal.
