7/10. Mother board is stupid expensive. Should have gotten a $70 board and used the extra to get a much better GPU.

6.5/10

Motherboard is the worst.
NO CPU COOLER.
7870 XT would have been possible.

No cpu cooler = No OC then why get 990x??

Really??? I have that same motherboard and have had zero issues with it, even transferring it from one case to another.

Hi, worst for the money especially since he won't be OCing, SLI or anything. The mobo is nice but not ideal for his budget.

He could have gotten a better videocard :( .

It's not a bad motherboard, it's just unbalanced for that kind of budget, you can find a good am3+ board with 970 chipset for 80-90$, the other ~43$ could be spent in a better gpu, like the 7870 powercolor tahiti le.

Yeah I agree there, less expensive motherboard, better video card. Makes sense!

When in the future?

It would have been better just to get a better card in 2 to 3 years.

If you don't plan on buying the card within the next year then it's more likely to be phased out.

7/10

It would be a 9/10 if you had a SSD boot drive ;) 

Brilliant build - cheap and powerful.

You could have saved a little on the mb , and then it would have been a 9.5
