CHEEEEEAAAP! Which in this case is a good thing considering the age and the happenings with fm2+ being released soon. I built my girlfriend a computer for $200 TOTAL which included a combo deal back when RAM prices where in their golden days. She got this mobo, 8gb of ddr3 1600 and an a4-3400 for less than $130 iirc. Then add on a refurbished coolermaster htpc case purchased locally for $30 with a psu and a WD 1 TB green drive. Add some linux sauce and poof, she was up and running. Solid for over a year and no complaints driving a 40+ inch television as a primary monitor non the less.
There really wasn't anything that went wrong with the install. Everything was functional though I wish now I had waited and set my girlfriend up with an fm2 rig which was released maybe a week before I bought this.
If you need a cheap computer that will handle 90% of your daily needs, this is a viable candidate for the backbone of that system. Though reading some of the other reviews it seems they can be hit or miss. Also worth considering that some people don't take precaution against static or are novices in general to the computer assembly game :D
