  1. It's a decent entry level board, suitable for office applications. If intended for gaming, these are my budget choices:

    $185 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131792
    $150 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131771

    Decide what ya need after reading about the chipset differences here:

    Cool thanks I'm going with The one for $150 the only problem is I don't think it will fit in side of my case I have a dell Inspiron 530 case what do you think? If not can you recommend a case that will fit this mobo. Thanks!

    I agree with JackNaylorPE, these two are great deal for the money, and great quality mobos. I got the V version, runs with no problem.
