      For £50 this motherboard is a steal, but you'll have to invest a few extra bob to deal with the heat

      This motherboard (the primary circuit board of a personal computer, containing the circuitry for the central processing unit, keyboard, mouse and monitor, together with slots for other devices... if you weren't aware) is for those looking to build a low-cost/mid range PC with an onboard GPU. I bought it for a client who wanted a custom build, but had a v. limited budget so bought over from the US for £60 (about $90), packaging was your standard Asus box and everything seemed ok.

      Installation into the machine was quick, and there were no major issues, one of the sata ports was a bit funny but nothing too shifty.

      Can quite easily handle 4gb of ram, and if you're not looking for anything too fancy this motherboard will suit you fine.

      A word of caution, the onboard graphics card (ATI 4200HD) runs VERY hot, I've had to install a custom heat extractor into the case to deal with the temperature - there are complaints online of it running at 128c although i've got it down to a 'reasonable' 90c so make sure you invest into a heatsink / extractor solution if this is your mobo of choice.

      If you can find it at about £50-60 this motherboard is an absolute bargain, anything more and you should look into more premium products.
