Summary: My new build is one of several months of a little bit now and a little bit later. Since this is my system, I have taken my time. I just hate having to reload files and software. I did have the presence of mind to purchase a data transfer device so I could click and drop files.
Summary: This board is sweet! i was looking for a cost effective board to build an HTPC. This one fits nicely into my micro atx case that i also got here on amazon. Paired mine with the AMD A8-3870K APU.Its designd for the AMD FM1 processors but only has two dimm slots though, so beware.
Good for building a cheap HTPC. May need a fast HDD and/or AMD A8 to impress enthusiests

Summary: I bought this to build a HTPC. I didn't give it 5-stars because, for the price, it should have come with at least one more 9-pin 2.0 USB header. It has only one, which I personally feel is bare minimum. I assembled my HTPC with the following.
Summary: Pros: Everything you would want on a standard ATX motherboard, in a nice, mATX form. Setup is very easy, the BIOS has that old school appearance (I like this) and is easy to navigate. The manual is clear and easy to read.
