    MSI IM-GM45 motherboard

    Has anyone used this motherboard for a project? I was thinking of using this board with a Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 , 4GB Corsair DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 Ram , and (2) Seagate 500GB laptop hard drives in RAID 0.

    No, but can I give some advise?
    Nice processor, but you really don't need 4GB of RAM and a 2 drive RAID array...
    As with any 2 HDD RAID stripe, you basically cut your mean time to failure in half. Certainly not what you need in a car!
    4GB of RAM is going to slow your hibernation times, and with a properly tweaked and managed OS, you really only need 1 to 2GB of RAM...

    I'm not thrilled about the Intel graphics, but it'll suffice.

    Put an Asus Xonar D2 PCI-e sound card in that thing and you'll be good!

    I thinking about this motherboard too.
    But if I look on PCI-e slot on this image:


    and PCI-e slot on sound card which I think I will buy:


    Looks like that can't be used in this slot... Grrr...
