Summary: Since I am writing this review on the computer I built using it, it worked great! I needed a new computer for my video and audio editing suite, since I am launching a new educational video business. Custom built was the way to go and this motherboard got the nod from my official computer guru, i.e. a friend much younger than myself.
Summary: Bought as part of a barebones system adding a SSD and Windows 7 OS. This is a very good BUDGET performer for the money. Two things to be aware as noted by another reviewer - Only SATA II and no USB 3.0, but will still be a good home PC performer for a few more years (why I bought it).
