I was building a system for a friend and needed a small form factor motherboard for the case he requested so ordered the Asus M5A78L-M LX Motherboard. Unfortunately though, this motherboard only supported CPU's rated up to 95Watts of power so couldn't use the good value AMD Quad Core CPU I had brought. So I sent the motherboard back and did my research on a replacement, and settled on this as it could support the CPU, and was also very cheap.

It only has two slots for RAM but this wasn't an issue here as this PC was only for gaming therefore didn't need very much at all - I settled on an 8GB kit. All the connectors on the motherboard are in the correct place (24-Pin on the right side, 4-Pin at the top near the CPU, and SATA etc. on the bottom). It does have in-built VGA which is nice to be there and would be good on older monitors but its usefulness now is questionable now in the modern world where digital outputs like HMDI or DVI-D are taking over which such better picture quality. There aren't a whole bundle of ports on the read I/O of this, but for the price point I wouldn't of expected it. It has four USB connectors (USB 2.0), always useful as that's what many accessories are using. There are 3 audio jacks, the obvious gigabit internet, a COM1 port that I don't know the use for and finally legacy PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports which is handy if you're using older keyboards like the bundled ones that come with old dell computers or something similar. Other ports you may not be able to decipher are 4 SATA ports and 2 fan headers + the CPU header, and two USB pin-outs.

In a word: Value. But good quality and useful value so hence a 5-star rating. I couldn't ask for anything more from this product.

I've used a few ASRock boards for budget builds, this one was for a re-build using an AMD FX6100 CPU.

As for most budget boards you get a fairly basic spec on the board, but it has most of what you would need for a cost effective build for a pc. If you are looking for a bit more in terms of USB 3.0, or higher memory capacity then you can move a bit higher up the range (and pay a bit more too!)

For a normal build this works quite well for me, it has the essential elements you need for that. Don't get too overly worked up about features with some boards, just look at what you need and pick a motherboard that meets that need. You get your usual bundle here, a back plate, 2 SATA cables, manual and CD for the drivers. It's what you expect for a cheaper board.

Onto the board itself...you have 4 SATA ports, 4 rear USB ports with 2 headers on the board for USB 2.0, HD Audio, Gigabit LAN 10/100/1000 Mb/s, one IDE connector (which might prove useful for older optical/HDD's etc), a PCI express one for a graphics card, and a normal one for other cards as well as 2 PCI slots (again useful for some builds)
I've no idea why there is a floppy connector on the board, I can't imagine it will get much use but there you go. On the plus side there are now a lot more solid capacitors too v previous budget ASRock boards (not all but quite a lot)

So it's fairly straightforward, no frills or anything fancy just the basics here.
You have a back VGA connector for the HD3000 integrated graphics, don't get overly excited about this it's fine for this kind of price, and helps decode HD video and DVD's and might pass for light gaming on older games. If you are doing some gaming I'd suggest picking up a budget card, but this is ok for light multimedia use or an office pc.

this motherboard was bought as part of a budget gaming pc build. these are the other components i am using:
athlon ii x4 640 3ghz am3 processor
corsair cx500v2 500w power supply
2x4gb kingston hyper-x 1600mhz ram
radeon hd 6870 graphics card (when i can afford one)
generic 500gb 3.5inch sata harddrive
lg 24x ide dvd rw
all built into an old case i had lying around with a total of 9 80cm case fans and some orange and blue lights.

as a basic motherboard this is extremely good, i updated the bios to version 1.3 as a previous reviewer suggested and used asrock's oc tuner software to overclock the processor to 3.5ghz with a 0.05 voltage increase. my cpu temps never go above 67 degrees even when running prime 95 (a stress tester) for hours on end, all using the pathetic stock cooler. this board only has one pci x16 expansion slot so you can only use one graphics card (no crossfire) but as a budget gaming pc i only plan to use one.

overall, as a budget gaming motherboard and at only £31 this product is amazing.

EDIT: i have now purchased my 6870 GPU which is working very nicely with a 35mhz overclock and temps just touching 83 degrees while stress testing with furmark. in games i have never seen it go above 65. i also rebuilt the rig into a Inwin EN036 micro-atx which i had to modify slightly to allow for a few more fans to be mounted in it. my graphics card caused my CPU to heat up a bit more pushing it to just over the recomended temperature (71 degrees) so i installed a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo cooler which has reduced them to around 57 while tress testing. again, in games it deosnt really go much above 45.

i also think i should mention that the 3.5ghz overclock (done in the BIOS now, more stable) actually required 1.
