    Fantastic Motherboard for the price, and has all the features you could possibly want to boot! Plenty of USBs, a front USB 3.0 header, and HD Audio in a 4 channel RAM board for under $50? Can't say no to that. Oh, and ClickBIOS is pretty neat too, once you finallly manage to figure out how to boot windows 8.1 from it (software newb here).

    I docked one star from it because I did have to buy a cheap APU to flash the BIOS, but I knew that I would have to going in. Just be careful when you buy your components, folks!

    Good looking board easy to work with for it's size. MSI has an easy to use bios, there are only a few issues. If you plan on uesing dual graphics cards then you will not be able to use the middle slot also lacking on fan connectors. Wish we could get rid of VGA ports and add a display port.
