Great board, be careful with the memory2/1/2017 12:46:49 PM

Pros: I used this for my first build in several years. It's been working fine for a couple months now and I'm happy with it. It has some backlights with minimal options, so that's good if you like that kind of thing.

Cons: It was finicky about the memory. Check out the approved memory list from their website and try to stick to it. I had some memory with a slightly higher clock and it didn't work at all. I got a beep and no video and I had a hard time determining exactly what the issue was. I picked up some memory that was exactly what the board needed and everything worked fine.

Made a simple gaming PC with it8/22/2014 7:55:35 AM

Pros: Inexpensive, the case seems pretty well made, easy to add a graphics card, came with keyboard and mouse.

Cons: None - met the description and runs pretty well in the first month.

Overall Review: I bought this because it was about the least expensive PC I could find with the minimal specs to make a low-end gaming PC. It comes with Windows 7, has enough memory and hard drive space to get by, and you can add a video card to suit your needs. Just check to make sure the power supply can handle it. It's not a high end processor by any means, but it is quad-core and seems to be able to handle itself well.

Quick add-on to help out a basic PC8/22/2014 7:39:38 AM

Pros: Inexpensive, doesn't need separate power cord, seems quiet.

Cons: I couldn't get it to work with a VGA cable with a DVI-VGA adapter. I had to get an HDMI-DVI cable.

Overall Review: I added this to a rather bare-bones PC to give it some gaming life.
