Summary: Bought this board in June 2011 for a budget gaming PC; considering the specifications for price it was the best option at the time. I also intended to set up a RAID 1 to back up data. Since then the only problem I have gotten was setting up the RAID. For unknown reasons one of the pair of WD 1TB Green drives would always be excluded. I made several attempts but was leaning towards there being a problem with one of the drives.
Summary: Purchased this Mobo for its cheap price and great specs. I should have read the reviews before purchasing(I know it wasn't very smart). First Mobo came in and was unresponsive to any of my other components. Thanks to Amazons great customer service though, I was able to get a new one shipped at no extra cost and it worked fine. Been using it for about a month now and no problems have occurred. The actual Mobo comes with some neat software as well.
Summary: As the title states, the price is worth it. It was easy to install, however the board felt a dash flimsy. Crosfire ready. However, (considering the size of GPUs these days) I am worried at the distance between the PCI-E Slots if I do decide to Crossfire. For the price, unbeatable.

Summary: I'm using this MB with a Phenom II quad-core processor, 16G of RAM, and 2 mirrored SATA drives. The lack of on-board video is a minor annoyance, as my use for this system is as a server running virts and buried away at the back of my home computer lab: having to buy a video card when a simple on-board VGA would have been adequate was a small annoyance. Other than that, it's been rock solid over the last few weeks and the price was right.
Summary: This is a good mb for "basic" pc. Pci-e 16x/4x slots are too close, if you plan to use it with dual video cards, then one of them will be at least 10ºC hotter than the other. At this price you can't complain.
Summary: This motherboard is a great value for a low budget system that handles DDR3 and triple core or quad core AMD CPUs. It even allows for automatic unlocking of AMD triple cores that allow unlocking. The only con is that it lacks USB 3.0, but don't expect to find any MB with USB 3.0 for even anywhere close to that price. At this time the only USB 3.0 hard drives are externals which will work with a USB 3.0 adapter card in the PCI Express X4 slot.
