This motherboard is great! It came intogether with the rest of my built. I bought this motherboard because it was very cheap. Of course Intel is better than AMD but AMD is my choice because you the price/performance ratio is much better. The motherboard works great with 2 different types of memory. I have 2x 2gb Kingston RAM and 2x 2gb Corsair RAM. Its a great motherboard for overclocking the processor as well as the memory. There's also an automatic overclock where it does the overclocking for you. I have an ATI Radeon 5870 and if I want, I can put another one next to it and use crossfire.
The USB ports stay powered even after you shut down, so if you need to load your battery you can also do that without having your pc on. There's also a green light on the mobo that indicates wether there is power or not.
