MSI 970A-G46

Is this motherboard worth the money? Would you buy this motherboard? Is this a good or bad board?

I've seen this motherboard listed just right below $200 from most websites.

Its lower end board, I would not necessarily recommend you use a 125watt TDP cpu with it not the greatest VRM, and 200 dollars is way too expensive.

Why do you want to buy a AM3+ mobo in the first place? That is an 8 year old platform, every cpu on that platform is starting to show its age. I would save up for a switch to ryzen if you like AMD rather than investing more money into AM3+.
