I was actually planning to get that board. I heard it has excellent stock performance but doesnt fair too well in its overclocking ability. It also comes with nice accessories (purple ATA and SATA cables) Pair this with an AMD athlon 3000+ or above and you'll prolly have good results.

If your not gonna overclock much this would be a great choice. Plus the purple color scheme is pimp!

Just read some of the reviews on newegg about it. also look for the board on google. I remember reading a couple reviews on it.
