5 out of 5 eggs Cheap but not Cheesy 12/18/2012

This review is from: ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Cost to feature ratio is really high. Durable and nicely laid out. Easy to install and upgrade Bios.

Cons:

Not a one. I wish it had come with a Q-connector like higher priced Asus boards, but I can not say it is a con.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this board for my wife's new system. I mated it with an AMD FX 4100 "Bulldozer" Processor and 8 GB of G-Skill Ripjaws Memory and my old EVGA GTS 450. It is running on a 430 watt Raidmax PSU. It starts up and runs really fast. She plays Perfect World and World of Warcraft on high/ultra setting without any lag or lockups. I have bought a lot of Asus boards in the past. This is the first low end board, and I am blown away. Never had a bad Asus board. I will recommend this board to anyone wanting to build a cheap gaming rig. I do recommend updating the Bios prior to installing the OS. Asus says it helps compatibility issues that may arise from the new FX chips.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to a review for this motherboard. Unfortunately, the Q-Connector (not included but can be purchased separately at our eStore http://estore.asus.com) is not compatible with the system panel pin layout and cannot be installed.

Regards,
Benson
