After testing the MSI 875P Neo-FIS2R, we were very pleased with the way 875P motherboards were progressing in terms of features, performance, reliability/compatibility, and price. If you were an early adopter of most 875P motherboards, you probably have noticed that your motherboard maker has posted a BIOS update or two that carry several patches, some of which include ICH5/R Serial ATA fixes, fixes for memory timing issues with low latency memory modules, or a microcode update for the small amount of 800MHz FSB Pentium 4 processors that were found to have a reliability anomaly. This is one of the reasons why it can be a bit risky to buy a desktop product the very moment it is released. Perhaps "bleeding edge" is fitting for all the pain and suffering users sometimes have to go through when they buy newly released products.

Read on to find out just what we liked about the IC7-G and whether or not this board is your best bet for that high-end Pentium 4 system you've been drooling over…
