You could save a little bit of money going with a M3A76-CM, which is a GREAT board (I have one), and get a 5670 which is much better than the 4670/50...

I have the older version of that mobo at home and it's rock solid.

I would say steer clear of ASrock they are notoriously crappy quality, I know there is a element of luck with all components but I have seen more DOA and problematic motherboards from ASrock than any other manufacturer.

If you want a good cheap motherboard + decent integrated graphics.
This is a great deal for about $65~

:/ i guess. i suggested it based on this review, and it looked like a solid board considering the price. pretty decent OCing too, they managed just a tad over 4ghz with a x4 965.
