Summary: Good for building a budget system. I was targeting mostly for web browsing, listening to mp3s, or watching videos. I was also trying to re-use as many old components as I could to keep the cost down. Paired it with a a4-5300. I took shot at powering the board with an old Antec Earthwatts 380 that only had a 4 pin atx 12v connector (this board uses the newer 8 pin style).
Summary: This is an economical board that does not lack in features. You can download the ATI catalyst from the ATI website and this will good you excellent graphics. Good quality sound output and it also has the capability to over clock if you wish to do that.
Summary: I have purchased many of these boards for client builds (I am an IT consultant). I have not have had any fail on me, and they are cheap and reliable. Make sure you use a cpu that has on-board graphics support; some of the AMD FM2's will require you to have a dedicated graphics card. All around mobo and very easy to setup and get going.
