FIC 875P Dynasty

..:: Introduction ::..

Today we’re going to be taking a good look at the 875P Dynasty from a manufacturer new to the MBReview testing labs, FIC. FIC has been known to throw some solid products into the market while offering high quality packages, and keeping the overall price down. These are two important buying factors that I know many of our readers are interested in. Several of you may, or may not know that FIC currently is responsible for manufacturing VIA’s own line of Pentium 4 motherboards. Although FIC motherboards haven’t been known for their blistering performance, we’ll see today just how well their i875P motherboard, the 875P Dynasty, can hold up against the competition.
