They are super crappy and will likely fail and take out the rest of your components. Get something from Antec, Corsair, XFX, Seasonic. $230 is a TON for a motherboard. Get something for around $140 like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
