I don't know any specifics about mobos, but otherwise it seems to be a really solid build. Comes with a 6770 is pretty good so you can crossfire a fairly cheap card for good results. fx 6100 is one of amds new bulldozer CPUs which they made pretty much especially for gaming. To be honest I haven't read many reviews of this newer generation, but the older generation had many flaws. From what I hear, the new bulldozer series is much improved, but you should look into it some more.
