Pros -Great purchase due to the motherboard being Asus. -Motherboard has enough slots for everything I need and possible future upgrades as well. -CPU is actually pretty good considering the price you're getting it for.
Cons -Motherboard does not support SLI or Intel CPU's (so don't expect to change to an intel CPU with this motherboard). -CPU often hits a pretty percentage when it's under load, it doesn't hold my system back but it's a concern. -CPU gets pretty hot under load (not using a CPU cooler currently)
Summary Great buy overall for a budget build, huge set backs are the fact that the motherboard is more towards AMD builders thus doesn't support SLI (not too big of a problem).
I initially thought I would get held back really hard by the FX 6300, but it doesn't seem to be the case, I can honestly say this is all that I need and was a great buy!
