Cheap but not Cheesy 12/18/2012
This review is from: ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Cost to feature ratio is really high. Durable and nicely laid out. Easy to install and upgrade Bios.
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.
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.
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.
