Pros:

SLI/Crossfire capable
USB 3.0
PS/2 Ports
Decent audio chip

This is a good mid range board. The 970 series North bridge allows for good quality features. It is not loaded though. If you want that you need to look at the next higher series.

Cons:

BIOS is a little difficult to work with. The mouse interface is nice but does get in the way. Could get use to it though. I just bypass it and go into "advanced mode".

Other Thoughts:

Recommend this board to anyone that needs a mid range system. You can even budget this board into a budget system and have the ability to upgrade later. I have noticed some reviews indicating DOAs. I have not had any problems with mine. I may just be lucky but I wonder. I have built a lot of systems using ASUS boards. I have only had one issue in seven years. Customer support was okay but they provided me with the the information I needed for the RMAs.
