I was thinking about getting this motherboard

I've heard things about biostar and they didn't sound too nice. What do you guys think?

Here's my opinion on it: If possible, avoid BioStar get a more premium brand. I'll edit what I said previously, because I really don't want to shine a bad light on BioStar, as they do make decent boards. If a better renowned brand isn't available/isn't possible, go ahead, as chances are that you won't have a serious problem over the product's lifespan.

The catch is that the lifespan may be marginally shorter due to less expensive build quality, and the money you save comes almost directly out of both physical quality and customer support. Like I said, I wouldn't get one as my first choice, but if nothing else is available, I'd probably still buy one. Just my opinion from experiences and things I've been told.

Alright thanks. I think I will settle on a Asrock Z77 Extreme3 mobo. Thanks for your answer.
