I bought its cousin, the A7N8X and am running it with a 2700+. I am mostly pleased with mine except it would not allow me to use one USB1 device. ASUS did not reply to an email I sent asking about the problem.
The board was physically bigger than my old one (an MSI something!) so a bit of minor screwdriving and adding of insulating pillars was needed.
The reason I did not go for the V version, in my limited understanding of such things, is that the VIA chipset may have problems with USB compatibility!! Whereas the nVidia chipset is better. Given my only problem was with the USB, I dread to think what a "poorer" version would do!
Try click here they may have some reviews (or do a search, there are loads of geek sites out there that will have much to say!).
I have the A7V8X with an AMD 2400XP, 1024 PC2700 DDR, SB AUDIGY 5.1 & G-Force Ti4600, Sony DVD & CDRW plus two 40gb hard drives and it is excellent.
The board has never gave me any problems at all and I always buy ASUS motherboards for my home network.
It has a nice little utility that automatically flashes your BIOS as well if needed, so the days of worrying about flashing the old bios are over...just back it up 1st: it gives you that option as well.
A very good buy.
