I was doing some googling and saw a lot of cheap biostar boards are DOA or wait 30 days until they blow up.

This one seems to have the least negative reviews so far, but if anyone has a better mobo suggestion under 85 US....im listening.

I just want to put a triple core, 8 gigs of ram, and a 5770 in a motherboard.

since I have the others, this is the last piece im gathering.

RECAP:

Good/Bad board?
Any better ideas?

Two motherboards ago I had an AMD Phenom II x4 setup on a Biostar (different model though), it lasted about 6months before all the Inputs and outputs in the back plate went out. Only the USB's I had going from the headers to the front of the case worked. I did not try to warranty it though because I wanted a new 2600k system and my friend needed the processor/ram upgrade for his rig. =] This is the only biostar board I've owned though so it might have just been bad luck. I was happy with it and it ran well up until that point. Good luck with whatever you choose!
