    Looks like mostly every other low-mid range motherboard on the Market. Nothing special, nothing bad.

    So between "yes" and "no"... Yes?

    ^^^^This, basically a very very old board. I can't give you a yay or nay unless you tell us what you want from your setup. Without that I'd edge towards no. If I was building a PC on a shoestring for an elderly relative just for email and surfing I might use it but otherwise no.

    for the asus board
    As the others pointed, the board is old, so if you want to build something on a thin budget and out of used parts, it's ok.

    The main problem with this board is to find a cpu that will power it.
    don't go out there thinking you can put the latest Quad core in there, you need to know what bios version it has to make sure it will work with the cpu you want. If you can't know the bios version then it will work with Pentium 4 (775), Pentium D, early core 2 (conroe) for sure.

    Sometimes you can get lucky and the board is able to power up and update the bios even if the cpu is unsupported. Other times, it's impossible and it crashes on the post.

    about for the Foxconn:

    Asus all the way. this foxconn is a low end mobo while the asus is an average/high-end mobo for it's time. ( can't see the model #, looks like a generic low cost made for a branded tower)

    BTW, what are you tying to do?
    what component do you have in hands?

    spending that amount of money on a 775 platform doesn't make sense at all.

    as an example:
    AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE 3.2ghz 125$
    Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 40$
    ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO 120$
    Total: 285$
    price from newegg us

    You see, with 285$ you have something that perform somewhat closely to a q9650 (3ghz) which sells alone for 340$ which is the most powerful cpu available on 775 platform. (a bit of over-clocking should close the gap)
