I got this motherboard from a tech shop that was just dumping stock to make room for other newer equipment. It was like $45. So I was like why not..
I'm not even looking to build just yet. One positive is that I can take my time and be selective with parts.
My current machines are all dual-core(s), and all are just about maxed out as far as upgrades and mods.
I feel that I can wait a little longer before I jump and build a tri or quad core beast.

Can the real users and techies tell me about this board in the real-world, I've read the reviews and reports on-line but,
I want to know more...?
Should I keep it and build.?
Sell it and find a different board, remember the price I got it for..?
If so, then what board do you recommend.?
I prefer m-atx boards. And I think that I want to stay with AMD/AM3.
Thanks in advance.
