Have you already purchased any of the hardware that you are planning on placing on this mobo? If so, what are the current specs of the hardware that you have.

Comparable Intel based motherboards are lower quality and far more expensive compared to AMD based motherboards however.

For the same quality / feature set, AMD boards cost me $100CDN vs $150CDN for a crappier intel based board.
