I can't speak for this board directly. I can speak of my experience with ASRock. My last budget build, was built about 4-5 years ago, and just taken out of comission a month ago. I had an ASRock M3A770DE in it. The board took everything I threw at it with out any problem. It OC'd just fine for me (just remember to have a good cooling solution if you OC) The only reason it's been replaced is because It didn't have USB 3 or SATA 3. IMO if you match up a good PSU,CPU, and GPU on the board you should be able to enjoy years of budget gaming.
