I just purchased this motherboard today. The sales rep. where i bought it claimed he was positive that the board is compatible with the Intel Pentium D915 CPU. I tried posting the board out of the case and it just doesn't post. I put the same CPU and RAM back into my old board, which works fine. This is the second time i ran into the same issue and I'm going to ask for my money back tomorrow. The reason I would like to use this board is for a replacement for my present ECS board which has an intermittent problem.

Re: Motherboard won't post.
I looked up your P5S800-VM motherboard on the Asus site and it doesn?t list the Pentium D915 ?Presler? dual core processor on its list of supported CPSs. Here is the link to show to your sales rep: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5S800-VM

Any old standard PCI graphics card will work with this board as long as you stay within the power levels your PSU can put out. You can not put a PCI-E or PCI-Express card on this board because you lack the necessary slots. Make sure you double check the interface before purchasing another graphics card.
NO!! That's not reasonable, and the seller knows it!! I'm an avid ebayer and if they're going to try to charge you to make it right, you should file a Paypal or Ebay Resolution claim today, or the seller will draw it out until the 60 days has passed and you'll have no recourse at all. (I assume you've already left positive feedback by now).
If this has been over 60 days, pay him the $60. You can get the labor cheaper, but not with the part included. Pay him through Paypal so you can keep the option of a new claim
Intel gives 3 years warranty with every new motherboard purchased. If you have purchased this motherboard during this 3 year period then you are eligible for a free repair or replacement. To claim, just take your board back to where you purchased it. They can take care of the rest. Thank you.
The E5200 would be a nice upgrade. It retails on Newegg.com for 65-69.00 and usually has free shipping. And if you have a compatible motherboard and purchase a nice heatsink, it overclocks very nicely.
It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.
