Summary: Buying this board depends on your intentions for it. Performance wise, its not to bad. My brother wanted an upgrade, and I do tech work. I wanted something affordable and the fact it had a dual core processor already installed made it worth trying. his uses where simply email and music/movies.
Summary: I purchased this to build a Windows HTPC using Windows Media Center and it has a lot of problems running at 1080P and even at 720P it has problems. I get lag when doing Netflix and HULU and at times even TV playback has problems.
