Released on 05 Jul 2004, the ASRock K7V88 is now over 16 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This motherboard will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from ASRock.
Conforming to the ATX standard, the ASRock K7V88 should fit into the majority of cases. ATX is the most common form factor, and as such has a high degree of compatibility with other components while providing a decent number of slots to widen your expansion options.
The ASRock K7V88 does not support onboard graphics. Any system build that uses this motherboard therefore requires a separate graphics card, or a processor that has a GPU on the same die, such as AMD APU processors. There are 0 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. The ASRock K7V88 does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.
The ASRock K7V88 has 8 USB 2.0 slots but no USB 3.0 slots. While USB 3.0 slots are so far by no means necessary, and with a plethora of USB 2.0 peripherals to choose from, the USB functionality on this motherboard should be fine. If planning on building a new system, a motherboard with USB 3.0 is likely to have a longer life cycle, however.
