This is a great motherboard, for which I have no complaints. For $10 less, you could get a motherboard from another company with a few less features; for an extra $30+, you could maybe get an mATX with the same specs, or an ATX with one more PCI-e slot (though it would probably only work in x8/x8 instead of something crazy like x16/x16--not that this one can do x16/x16...). If you only want one graphics card, or even if you don't want any, this is probably the best mATX board for the money (at least, that I could find, and I do not regret the purchase, in any way).
my only complaint I have about this board is where the front audio port is located on the motherboard and I would love to see more fan connections on it rather then the couple we get that are in the way of other stuff or just right in the way for nice cable management. Overall though I bought this for a HTPC build and it does wonders, the onboard video delivers all I need for movies and tv shows and basic ROM games can be played on it just fine. I really got to try getting a AMD chip that will unlock to use on this, would be fun :)
Bought this motherboard for a budget build. Delivers more than enough for browsing, word processing and common tasks. Good support for HD video playback. The software for the integrated audio controller offers a lot of features and configurations. Highly recommended!
Good board. I like having 2x USB3, tons of USB ports, and how easily it unlocked the cores in my Phenom II X2 555 (turned it into a X4 just by enabling "Unlock Cores"). The drivers and software tools for the onboard features are decent but not great. A Cooler Master Hyper 212+ blocks one ram slot.
The one problem I had was with using it as a HTPC board. When connected to my 1920x1080 24" LCD monitor, it fills the screen properly. But, connected to my 46" Sony 1080p TV via HDMI or DVI, the image only fills 80-90% of the screen. I installed an old, cheap video card and the image filled the TV screen, so there is something slightly incompatible between the TV and the board.
I used this in a budget build for someone who didn't want to have to upgrade for a while. I've had good luck with Gigabyte motherboards, and this one was somewhat future-proofed by having USB3 and SATA3. It will probably never unlock any disabled cores or cache and will also never be overclocked. But all those options are there if the owner does want to pursue those avenues.
I have never built a AMD system but because of my tight budget, I turned to AMD. This mobo is much cheaper than Intel's one for the same level of features and functionalities. The greatest thing about this board is the integrated graphics: an ATI integrated graphics is powerful enough for lots of use. Although you can add an decent discrete graphics card if you want some gaming. This board also supports USB3 and SATA3, which is very useful few months/a year later.
