Cheap cost and great performance equals more bang for your buck.

Summary: Motherboard review is completely positive since purchase. I bought this motherboard as a birthday present for my son. We upgraded him from single core processing to an amd phenom ii 855 series quad core A3. with only 2 gigs of ddr3 ram it handles without flaw. we will be upgrading the ram to 4 gigs soon. onboard video is great. i would buy again. Comparing this to Intel..... would put you at about i7 925. comparing the price....well, there is no comparison.
Summary: Seems to be a very stable board and overclocking dipswitches work well for the AMD Phenom II X2 511 CPU I used with it. Onboard video is a bit weak and there's only 2 memory slots, but overall it's well worth the $50 pricetag.
Summary: Everything ran well with the board. The only problem is if you require alot of USB bandwidth you may be better with getting a board with more USB bandwidth. I used a USB audio speaker with this board and it sucked the bandwidth away so I was forced into getting a PCI USB card which fixed the bandwidth problem. Besides that it is an awesome board.
