This is a really good mobo for the price and Asus is a reputable brand.

I would say get a newer chipset board, but if you are price limited that will be a great board. See if you can get the 790FX if possible.

Depending on the price (usually however M4A79XTD EVO sells at great prices) it's a good combo

Is the combo with the 870 EVO for $10 more a better deal?

If you're willing to sacrifice 8x-8x CrossfireX and a mosfet heatsink (though you do get SATAIII and USB3)
Also, GA-870A-UD3 is cheaper (in non-combo deal) with 965. I'm sort of partial to Gigabyte boards, so
