Is this a good board?

I was thinking of getting this board. They have a combo deal for this board and the Phenom 9850 BE for $245. I'm just not sure if its a very good board. Pretty awesome deal though. A motherboard for $10.

The build I am thinking of going with is:
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138106
Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103249
Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166

I wouldnt really think that it will OC very well. There are no heatspreaders for the MOSFETS, which could be a problem with power delivery. The chipset coolers look cheap and inadequate, and if you ever decide to go SLI you need a new board entirely. Also the integrated sound doesnt look that great either, its not even 8 channel by the looks of it :s

That particular MB isn't known for OCing.
The TA770 A2+ is a bit fussy and slow to BOOT but a solid OCer, I have one

i say get the deal just to have an extra mobo. you are prolly not going to want to overclock on this like said before. but its always nice to have extra parts for when the **** hits the fan. but you could also sell the board for $50 and make more money toward a better board. its only 10$ might as well get it

It actually has some fans here as being a good budget OC'ing MB.The problem is that it won't support the 9850 BE,according to their website.The 9850 is a 125W CPU and you need to make sure that the MB can handle the power requirements.Many of the budget MB's and early versions of other MB's can't handle it.Check the specs on any MB for that,many have new revisions that can handle it now and their is even 140W support on some.

Sorry thought it was the TA770,not the best OC'er but check the power support on others.

I don't plan to be overclocking anything. And if that board doesn't support that processor then why would they sell them together? I also dont plan to go SLI.
