Summary: this msi amd motherboard is kinda suited for a decent desktop build for under $300. i was building a rig to just play runescape, stream videos/movies online, emails and some CL searching. the motherboard had enough usb ports, which is 8. has hdmi & vga output which i preferred. can handle dual channel ram, up to 32gb, which i may only use about half of it's potential in the near future, but at least i know it can go up to 32gb.
Summary: This serves its purpose for a compact gaming machine, I put all my huge parts in and they all fit perfectly, great board for budget builders, I love this board and it has been going strong for a few months already.
Summary: I built a machine for my Stepsons Grandmother and she runs it non stop day and night playing solitaire and other Grandma games... So far, we have had zero issues and it was very compatible and cheap with AMD Dual-Core A4-Series and Kingston Hyper X Blu 4 GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM! A+ for the price I paid!
Summary: I like this alot, But the instructions are unclear. and If you have a Big GPU its gonna cover the sata ports. So either buy 90 degree sata cables or buy a different mother board. Other then that it came fast and was perfect.
Summary: Used this to build a family member a basic web surfing/emailing pc. They didn't need much and were on a tight budget. Works great, I was actually surprised how snappy it felt once up and running.
Bad situation turned into a great experience!!!! TY Amazon & MSI!

Summary: This mother board is great! I have never had any issues with MSI, my last board I bought from them lasted over 11 years and is still running in a build that I made for my mother and father to browse the web! However I cant give a 5/5 score, because the first motherboard I received was not new, it had scratch's all over the board and it looked like it was installed in a previous system.
Summary: Good board for Office or Home Environment. The Five I have purchased have been good out of the box. Use the MSI Live Update software to update the BIOS and AMD Video driver. This board has never let me down and helped introduce me to the APU family of AMD Processors. I prefer this over the Gigabyte Motherboard. No USB 3 connections, but not an issue for me.
