D510MO still a good board?

Digging through my junk drawer I happened to locate an old D510MO ITX board. I know these boards were considered good in the past. Still fast enough for a new current install? It's got 2 gigs of RAM. I intend to use it with a 5i25 Mesa card in the only PCI slot. This will be connected to a 7i77 on one port and a 7i74 connects to two 7i70 cards and two 7i71 cards. It will be controlling 4 axis and maybe up to 6. Should I use this board or should I grab something different for a current install? If so is there a recommendation? I also own a PCI version of the Mesa 25 pin card. Also brings me to the question. Do they make an Ethernet replacement for the 5i25?

7i92 is a direct replacement for 5i25, it is an ethernet board, there is also a 6i25 that us a PCI-E version of 5i25.

Thanks tommylight! Looks like the ethernet version is slower. I guess I will just use the PCI and try this board. Any idea if this board will be fast enough with the current build of Linuxcnc? Its got an Intel Dual-Core Atom D510 processor(1.66 GHz, 1MB L2 Cache) and 2 gigs of DDR2 800 ram.

There is not diference in speed between them.
Use the wheezy version, it should run properly.
You can update Linuxcnc version at will, but updating Debian Wheezy has some issues to be overcome, for more info try the BigJT website at

The only speed difference you might notice would be if for some reason you needed to run a super fast servo-thread for some reason. (and you'll never do that with a D510.)
