Palit N73PV detailed review


Aged nForce Powered Entry Level Board


The Palit N73PV is a micro-ATX format LGA775 motherboard for Intel processors. It’s based on the nForce 610i chipset and uses the GeForce 7100 as the graphics solution. It has native support or 1333 MHz processors, so the Core 2 Duo E6x50 processors will run without the need to flash the BIOS.

The focus is on being an entertainment board—it  features a DVI-D port and a 7.1 channel Realtek HD audio onboard sound card.

The onboard graphics solution isn’t great, with Doom 3 giving frame rates in the 20s on medium settings and low resolutions. There is a PCI-E 16x slot and two standard PCI slots for any upgrading that you might want to do. There are only 2 DIMM slots, which means you can’t plug in more than 2 GB of RAM.

The layout of the board is compact, and there are no major flaws with it. A graphics card with a large cooler could render the adjoining PCI slot useless leaving only 1 slot for expansion—a TV tuner card for example. Luckily, the SATA ports have no such issues. The bundle is extremely basic, and there is no supplied software other than the necessary drivers for the board.

For users who are looking for performance in a gaming machine, there are cheap P35 based motherboards available starting from around Rs 4,500 which would make a better buy than the Palit N73PV. The price for this motherboard is a mere Rs 2,950 which makes it ideal for anyone building a HTPC, or maybe just a PC for regular use with an extremely tight budget.
