It's pretty good.
The only thing I don't like about it, is that it's lacking Sata 6Gb/s and USB 3.0, otherwise, it's a very good board for the price.

Agreed with the above ^. You might wanna check some with DDR3 also if you got the cash, since DDR2 boards will soon be more expensive to upgrade as it may become rare in the future, just saying.

Looks like it is AM3/DDR2 (rare but they are out there :P). I would suggest just going for a DDR3 version since it's newer/faster tech, and will be better for future upgrades.

oooh, eye phail...

you're right joel i scrolled down to the listed specs and just saw "socket: am3", so...

anyway, yes i agree with both joel and james on perhaps looking at a different mobo.

actually this one looks pretty good, considering the price.
Biostar TA785G3HD Motherboard - AMD 785G Socket, AM3, MicroATX, HDMI, DVI, VGA, USB 2.0, PCIe, Hybrid CrossFireX at TigerDirect.com
(more specs directly from the manufacturer: BIOSTAR :: TA785G3 HD :: Overview)

i would get that mobo instead.
