Excellent low-budget board, though beware if you are using it for a 32-bit system (or 4gb or less of ram on 64-bit)!
Motherboard boots faster than any other motherboard that i've used to this point. If you are on a budget, it's a great board for such a build, especially if you don't mind vga if you are using integrated graphics. That said, the mb does use up to 1.8 gb of ram if you are using the integrated graphics. While that is not a big deal if you are doing a 64-bit build with 8-16 gb of ram (up to 32gb if 16gb sticks of ddr3 ram ever come out), if you are doing a 32-bit build like i did (because i use legacy dos software that won't work in 64-bit) and are limited to 4gb maximum ram because of that, a 2gb+ video card is a good idea (and if you are getting a video card, then you have the option of getting an athlon processor with no video on the processor). Rosewill steel/plastic atx case with dual fans (front and rear) already installed (excellent budget case) msi socket fm2+/ amd a68h micro atx mb amd socket fm2 a6800k 4.1 ghz processor two antec tricool 120mm cooling fan with 3-speed (used on side panel) antec vp-450 450 watt energy star certified power supply transcend 64gb ssd (boot drive) wd black 1tb hard drive (storage drive) asus oem dvd+rw drive 4gb crucial ballistix sport ddr3 1600 ram (max ram for a 32-bit machine) windows 7 professional sp1 32bit do plan to add a video card to free up ram soon, if you need to do a build on the cheap, this is an excellent board to work with overall!
